Rare opportunity for amateur imagers! new
      #5757883 - 03/26/13 10:30 AM

Hello all Horsehead Nebula imagers!

I was contacted by the Hubble Heritage Team who will be releasing a new WFC3 image of the Horsehead Nebula in mid-April for Hubble's anniversary. Before then, they are hoping to collect and showcase amateur and professional images of the Horsehead. They are hosting a flickr group (http://www.flickr.com/groups/2190981@N21/) and a tumblr (http://horsehead-revisited.tumblr.com/) and they are also accepting submissions to hubbleheritage.create@gmail.com.

They are especially interested in hearing individual "Horsehead stories" that we can ultimately include as part of the image release. This is a great opportunity for the amateur imaging community to show the Hubble Heritage Team our imaging ability!

Kindest Regards,
Ken Crawford, President
Advanced Imaging Conference

Very cool opportunity. Thank you for sharing, Ken!

I wonder if the Hubble team ever sees the incredible images being produced on this forum?

Well, Zolt and Lisa have been to AIC two times and have seen what we can accomplish. This is why they contacted me to get the word out for submissions. . .

Regards,

weird, the flickr group seems to be dead, and you have to send a message to zolt or whoever owns the group to join and post pictures there. sent a flickrmail a couple of days ago and no response...
