The January 2020 Challenge is now open. The target is Dolphin nebula (Sh2-188). To reduce the number of stickies, please submit your entry to this thread.
For those having troubles locating the target here is a post that will help locate near by objects.
The Rules will remain pretty simple:
Your Data, Captured This Season
One Entry Per Member
To increase participation over such a diverse group, the winner will be selected by random drawing. Please feel free to start a thread requesting guidance on your entry prior to submitting it, the whole purpose of this challenge is to learn and compare on a common target. Entries must be submitted by midnight eastern time on January 31, and I will try to announce the winner early in February.
Note: If I am late announcing, gently nudge one of the moderators in a private note, it helps. Seriously, PM one of us!
Please display an image in your post, not just a link!!
I hope everyone has fun with this one, and with that,
Let The Games Begin
