The order of the first and third items are switched in the poll versus the images.

Well if anyone is wondering when the June contest will start, it looks like polling for the CCD forum won't be done until the 18th, So we'll be holding the overall contest a little late this month.

I can't see Eric's image, is an error on the poll or is it just me?

I can see it. Did you try refreshing the page?

Is anyone else having this problem?

Yeah, I tried refreshing...actually I don't see it in the submissions thread either unless I select the Attachments link in the post header. Must be a Firefox issue.

FWIW, I can see it in Firefox (Windows, 1.5.0.4) too.

I found the problem. The filename of his image has "ADS" in it. Apparently the Adblock + Adblock Filterset G extentions have an overzealous filter that is blocking the image. I disabled Adblock and it worked fine. I just white-listed Cloudy Nights so the problem won't occur again. Sorry for the trouble.

Just a suggestion...
I think there should be a (locked) post which contains the winners each month. That way it would be easy to look at the best of CN over a period of time, rather than having to scroll through all the previous posts...

Thanks,

Peter et al

I am not sure I understand this suggestion but I assume that you have a good idea here about posting the contest submissions.

I have had several people write to me personally and ask why I have not won a contest yet as they seem to think I have been featured more in NASA web sites and soon to be in the Coast to Coast AM site (next week July 27 ~ Aug 2.

I do not really concern myself with winning contests- I just hope to share what I do with my astronomy art in hopes that it inspires others to try.

Am I not submitting my works properly for art contests?

I hope to hear from Charlie, Erika and other moderators or anyones advice,

thanks
Mark

I think you guys do amazing things with modest equipment. Truly a triumph of inventiveness over budget. I live in an area of very bad light pollution, so I don't even own a telescope these days. I have to get my kicks by writing software to manipulate and explore FITS images from professional telescopes. Consequently I have something of an understanding of how talented these entries are. Keep it up - us townies appreciate it!

Did this suggestion from Littleman ever materialize?

Thanks for any info,

Mark

Hi Mark - never did get that together. I do eventually plan on doing it but to be honest it's not a high priority project at the moment... you can see that the poll threads are pretty much all that's in this forum, so if you want to have a look over time it's easy enough to do.

That said I will try to put aside some time to get this accomplished in the near future.
