I came close to voting for the Leo Trio and M51 pictures but in the end my vote went to swalker's Venus picture. I've never seen Venusian detail like that taken with an earth based telescope. Well done!!

My two favorites are Florent's M51 and Krneki's Leo Trio, but all are worthy of votes! All are fantastic images (and sketch) by their own merits.

My favourite for this month is swalker's Venus
I´ve never seen this amount of details on Venus !! Really very difficult matter. Congratulations !

Very nice work!

The sketch is great too, but Swalker gets my vote overall for such a unique image.

I've been informed by the ALPO Venus director that this is the first apparition where many imagers have departed from the visual wavelengths to pursue the elusive and mysterious details within the Venusian atmosphere (it is still unknown what substance is absorbing UV light in these features). Also, this pursuit contributes true science.
Still, I believe all the entries are winners in their own right. My venus image is just due mostly to luck and patience- I've so far recorded Venus on 40 nights since January.

Maybe the contest should move to having multiple images in each category, then letting us vote on a winner for each category.
You actually can - semi-finals are held each month in the respective forums. You get the chance to vote for the image that will eventually come here for the finals!

Well this is getting harder every month. Specially since they are all from different "schools", they are all outright winners. . . . . Finally, I have to say that Dragon Man should be kicked out of the beginners forum!!! - great detail in the low S/N areas!
Thank you for the compliment. Which section do I move to with a Toucam?
Congrats Florent for your superb image, and to the others . . . well done. All great images.
