congrats to all who entered. to be able to capture an image of something so distant is an achievement to be proud of. To the 3 winners, well done. there are some great images so to be in the top three is quite good going.

Wow !

I didn't expect that given the quality of other entries, thanks very much and congratulations to all the other winners.

I may well give my Esprit 150 a special dust this evening....:happy11:

All extremely well deserved!

And Alan, last night, before I knew this,  I finally pushed the FLO buy button on an Esprit 150 - and I now feel truely reinfored that I made the right decision - just have to learn to swing it as well as you have done.

Thanks Gorann - I don't think that you will be disappointed with the Esprit 150, for the price, I think it represents excellent value. However, be warned - it is quite a monster, so you might want to limber up before attempting to place it on your mount !

Thank you very much, with such great images from everyone I am sure it was difficult to choose from them all.  Congratulations Alan and Richard, your images are wonderful, well done.  Thanks everyone for your kind comments; they are much appreciated.

Cheers

Excellent stuff.

Even though I now know the official winner, I can't decide between them.

I wouldn't want any of them to be mine ...... I'd want them all :)

Just checked and please to see one winner used an unmodded DSLR, one a specialist astro colour camera and one a mono camera with LRGB filters - good to see different approaches to colour imaging represented in the winners.
