Amazing images, all three.  The winner in particular blew me away when I first saw it.

Delighted with this, that image nearly broke my laptop with the amount of subs. A very worthy winning image from Mark, and a fabulous M51 by SvartSort.

I feel really honoured to have won.  Thanks so much!

The competition was fierce as shown by the quality of Allinthehead's Sadr and SvartSork's M51.

Congrats to winners! Nice pics!

I saw last evening the winner picture and it seemed.. umm.. somehow posterized, perhaps with the color profiles too?!. It seems now once again that my laptop's screen fooled me.

Congratulations to the worthy winners, all 3 images are superb. I'm especially amazed by the intergalactic flux in sharkmeley's M81/82..astounding really!

Congratulations to the winners and the people who didn't win. With time and effort you can rival pictures made even by nasa.

Great images and worthy winners, inspirational stuff that keeps me going. Can't wait to have another go at M51, M81 and M82, not sure I'll do the Sadr region justice with my set up!
