Now Accepting Entries - Submit Your Image Today!

What better way to celebrate our solar system than to image the center of it all! Solar images are our way of appreciating a moment for years to come. They allow us to learn and wonder about the world around us and we want to see what you can capture. We want to give you an opportunity to submit your images for our solar astrophotography contest now through June 30th for a chance to win an amazing prize!





Enter to win a $200 Lunt Solar System gift card. Additionally, each month we will promote and share the winning image with thousands of our social media followers and email subscribers around the world.



Looking for inspiration?
