Tarantula Nebula under Urban Skies - 17 Hours
      #5657314 - 02/01/13 10:48 PM

I just posted my first image the Tarantula Nebula in narrowband on 1 Feb 2013. I noticed that living in the future in Oz can have an affect on dates, the posting is dated 31 Jan 2013 - that pesky international dateline....

I wish to submit this image for the contest. Is this the correct place to post this image? I'm still not sure after reading the contest rules where I submit the image.

Hi Terry, this should go in the CCD forum when the next submissions thread comes out (which is around the 15th of the month.) Unfortunately, you didn't make the poll for January, but you certainly can make February's!
