I voted for Zyxlor as well. The sooner he graduates from the beginners forum, the better my chances get. Zyxlor, you have really made the Big Gun Tak work for you.

I want to see you post a pix of you wearing that Cloudy Nights “T”

I'm a DSO freak so I don't hang out in our Solar System but I am stunned by the clarity and detail of the Jupiter image.
Paul... what a fantastic image!
You live on Earth right?

Awesome collection. It's getting hard to even pick the bottom of the herd, much less the top. No losers here, I'd be proud to hang any as my own.
Congrats!

Details on Jupiter are simply awesome!

Love the composition of Pleaides and North American Neb. too!

Why do we get all these hard decisions? :tonofbricks:

It's really hard to make a decision... My vote was about given to Eric but I am more amazed by the hand sketching! Good work everyone!

Another difficult choice.
Probably one of the hardest up to now...
I saw all images from the first day,
however I took some time to reach a choice.

Despite I was staring Jupiter for a quite long,
I finally went for EricCCD.

Congratulations to all finalists.
(Zyxlor you deserve an extra special!) ;)

Carry on my friends !

:bow:
AstroBoBo: The color contrast is superb, but the clincher is the composition. I'm not sure I've seen this swath of sky in pixels before. And I do have a fondness for wide angle views of the night sky.
All of the finalists have put forth fantastic efforts. They are all to be congratulated.

Wow! I am honored! Thanks to everyone who voted, and thanks for the comments as well. Any feedback on my work only helps to make me more aware of what to look out for next time.

And congrats to all the other entrants to the contest as well! I will have to say that the Solar System entries always floor me with the level of detail they can achieve! Z, I think you're swimming with the big boys now ;)

I vote for EricCCD. They are all very good but this one just caught my eye a little more.
