    __________________________________________________ ________


    Each of these will be automatically entered (with the exception of the "Honorable Mention") into the 4th Quarter 2015 Astronomyforum.net International Astrophotography Contest for the grand prize!

    Special thanks to the AF.net moderator team for taking the time to go through each image for the month of December to make the selection. Our members make this task extremely difficult by posting the best images!

    Thanks to all our very accomplished AP'ers. We had a lot of fantastic images to pick from.

    If you want to participate it's pretty simple!

    Here's a link to the contest rules: New Astrophotography Contest!!!!!

    *Honorable mention is just that, honorably mentioned. Images chosen to appear in this category are not entered in the quarterly contests as an honorable mention selection.
