Great solar sketch, Mark. Wanna sell it? <g>

Well done, all. That's a magnificent M45 for a "beginner's shot"!

Then all thses people must be a professional and don't even know it,because when someone offers me a compliment and smile for something I have done, I feel humble for accepting
such a reward as payment for something I love to do.

This is the best bunch I've seen since first noticing these about a year ago. They all are glorious. Trying to pick from amoung is making my head hurt....

I came real close to plunking for the NGC2264 photo. Such detail taken with a little newt. :bow: :bow:

But I finally went for the sketch of the lunar eclipse. Kraterkid put a lot of detail into his picture based on "naked-eye" observation. Just wonderful. :bow: :bow: :bow:

Good for you!

We are so saturated. We have too much 'stuff'.

Wow! Once again a superb set of entries, every one! Both of the nebulae are targets rarely shot by astrophotogrophers, the pleiades is absolutely fantastic and the sketching is just superb. I found it a very close call between the saturn picture and the film photo of the lunar eclipse... in the end I went for the eclipse, not only because it is an amazing piece of astronomy but also it is so unusual to see such a contrast between earth and space on the same picture.
But really, I think one of the best lineups yet!
Keep up the good work!!!

Sketching Forum's Finalist - kraterkid, got my vote. I like to vote for whatever entry strikes me as most original. This time, it was the artist that caught my attention most.

Very fine set of entries.

wow............... these are all amazing.

The images of the Pleiades and 2264 both took my breath away- incredible. But I went for the Eskimo Nebula. It's such a beautiful, wondrous phenomenon, that I feel lucky given the chance to enjoy it as never before.

What an exceptional photo, thanks for sharing it with us.

... and thanks for my new desktop!

The contest entries all exhibit the incredible level of talent and ability featured by the CN membership. What is truly astounding is to compare these with the photos published by the world's premier observatories 10-20 years ago. Kudos to all contestants; they are all superb images.

I think that these "Finalists" need to be renamed "WINNERS" in their respective category as they are ALL truly fantastic displays of the heavens!!!

There is still room for a "Overall Monthly Winner" but these entries deserve to be called something better than "finalists"!!!!

just my opnion.... ;)


Actually each one *is* the winner of the individual polls taken in each forum represented. The prize for winning is that they become a finalist in the site-wide contest.

Why does the word "Amateur" have negative connotations to some people? Amateurs do what they do out of love, and not for the money... :rainbow:
