I am pleased to announce the winner of the March 2008 Cloudy Nights Imaging and Sketching Contest - Jim Lafferty!

Posted Image

IC 443, the Jellyfish Nebula, a galactic supernova remnant approx 5,000 light years distant in the constellation Gemini. Imaged over 4 nights on Jan 12-13-14-15, 2008, with my FSQ106N and ST2000xm (Astrodon Filters) riding on a Takahashi NJP. 200 minutes of Ha was used for the luminance, 100 mins of SII for the red channel, 200 min of Ha for the green channel, and 100 mins OIII used for the blue channel (all unbinned, 20 min subs). Total exposure was 6.6 hours.

WOW-thanks to everyone including the imagers/sketchers in the contest this month. I was "blown away" when I saw the kind of stuff everyone is doing in their respective genre. This hobby has really improved over the years in the ability of "everyday people" to produce exciting results!

Regards to all,
Jim

I did not vote as I missed the dead line. But I have to say the Jellyfish Nebula would have got my vote, The colors were amazing.... Is their any way of finding out in advance when the COMPERTITIONS run.... :question:
