We are very pleased and proud to present the July 2012 Solar System Imaging Semi-Finalists in the Cloudy Nights Imaging/Sketching Contest.

Mike Phillips:



I'll enter for something again. I hate going uncontested, someone beat me! Here's Pluto near M25:

Taken with my 14" f/4.5 and a Canon 7D. Subs were about 6 in quantity with various random duration for a total of about 8minutes. All subs at ISO 6400.

Captured with Canon Utility
Guided with PHD
Stacked in DSS
Processed in PS
Final image assembly in Gimp.

Mike




oldstargazer:



The center of the frame is crater Hippalus. There are some 2x2 mile diameter craters with names in the frame and some smaller that have no names on my atlas. This is with my T3i on my CPC1100 with 3x barlow at 1/40 sec iso 3200 on 7/28/12.



bunyon:



This is a three frame mosaic taken through a PST with 3x Barlow and Flea3. Imaged the morning of July 26.




Please note that voting will conclude on August 10th at Midnight EST.

Many thanks to all who took part in the contest!

Wow. Thanks everybody. First time I've won when there other actual entries.

Which were outstanding. I'm always amazed at the quality of images in this forum.
