    Well done winners and all entrants. Your images give me something to aspire to.

    In most competitions competitors keep their methods secret for that competitive edge. One of the great things bout this community and this forum in particular is that the competitors are often giving advice to the imager they will be "competing against" next.

    Hi Gordon and all. A big congratulations to the winners. And, as already stated several times above, it was really hard to choose from all of the great images. I hope to see all of the winners and entrants images again soon, both on the general forum, and also in the next astrophotography contest. A big thanks to Gordon for his work in conducting this contest, and to all of the contestants, and keep up the great work.
