The January 2023 Challenge is now open. The target is the NGC 2403. To reduce the number of stickies, please submit your entry to this thread.
The Rules will remain pretty simple:
-Your Data, Captured This Season
-One Entry Per Member
-Only post your FINAL image. Please display an image in your post, not just a link!!
NO general discussion in this thread. Your post should only contain your image and appropriate info. There is a separate thread for discussion.
To increase participation over such a diverse group, the winner will be selected by random drawing.
Entries must be submitted by midnight, eastern time, on January 31, and I will try to announce the winner sometime after February 1.
If the selected winner does not reply and pick a target with-in 3 days of the winner being announced, the Mods will then select the next target.
There is now a companion thread that runs parallel with the imaging challenge each month. This thread will be for general discussion on the corresponding months imaging challenge target. This thread will be very informal and relaxed and will be treated just like any other thread in the forums. Here is where you can post questions on processing, get help finding the targets location, post a preliminary "final" image to get feedback, etc. The only thing special is that I will be pinning it every month and each months companion thread will be titled in the same way for easy finding and searching. Since this is informal the mods will NOT be starting this thread. We will leave it up to the general membership. So it could take a couple days for someone to start it and for a mod to pin it. So please be patient if you don't see it up day one. Who ever starts this thread please PM me with a link to the thread so I can pin it.
Whoever starts the companion thread should title it to match the following: Target Name - Techniques and Progress Discussion For example: Rosette Challenge - Techniques and Progress Discussion
Once the companion thread is post, please DM me with a link and I will get it pinned.
Note: If I am late announcing, gently nudge one of the moderators in a private note, it helps.
I hope everyone has fun with this one, and with that,
Let The Games Begin
