There is no other explanation, I believe the gods of astrophotography really sympathized with me. Being among the 20 selected in my category (planets and comets) where there were 3,800 registered photographers from 91 countries can be considered a triumph for Brazilian astrophotography. I just have to thank everyone who supported me, helped and guided me in the development of this hobby. I also thank my family for so many hours that I stop being with them to be closed on the observatory wandering between the moon and the planets.

You must be feeling very honored for the recognition we all here knew you truly deserved. We weren't just being nice when we buried you in our compliments! :D

As I've said before - and I believe is worth repeating - you're soon to be a big, hard-bound Coffee-Table book!

Go get 'em, Tiger!

Dave

Your words very moved me Dave!
I am a true fan of lunar and planetary photography, in the midst of so many (more than 500 in Astrobin) some certainly should serve for something, LOL.

Dude, that is freeking unbelievable... your images are better than damian peach... in result and the fact that you're not resorting to using a 1m Schmitt Cassagrain which in the AA domain is cheating.

Thanks colleagues!

Damian does a great job, I am however a simple apprentice friend MarsG76.
Anyone who can get a chance to use a 1-meter Cassegrain should not despise it, LOL.

Yeah true, but you cant be using a Nissan GTR35 in a race with Mitsubishi EVO's and Subaru WRXs and say "HA, I'm faster"... so Peach no longer belongs in the AA category when he has access to professional kit in a observatory.
