    Default December 2017 Astrophotography winners!



    ************************************************** ****************************
    Here are the winners as selected by the AF.net moderator team for December 2017:

    DSO: IC2118 Witch Head Nebula Member: Astrovetteman Congratulations Tom!

    LUNAR: [Cellphone] Super Moon Member: Lokifish Congratulations Lokifish

    SOLAR: SUN... PROMS and SPICULES KICKING UP a STORM Member: Lowjiber Congratulations John!

    NIGHTSCAPE: A full moon rising Member: rgbtxus Congratulations Richard!

    SOLAR SYSTEM: Nobody selected for December (lets get those Solar System images posted!!!)

    *HONORABLE MENTION: The moderator team selected (dcrowson) Dan for Honorable mention for December. For anyone who has followed Dans postings for AP, much of his work is NOT about the "popular" targets, he specializes in the relatively vague objects many of which would typically be considered 'bland'. However if you look closely, his images are all very well done and processed with the same amount of time and energy that would be consumed with the popular targets. This is just one example: Arp 273 Congratulations Dan!

    ************************************************** ******************

    For those of you who are wondering how our monthly / quarterly Astrophotography contest works here's a link to the rules. LINK

    *Note: Honorable Mention photo is not eligible for quarterly contest.
