The theme for the thirteenth challenge - April 2018 - is Lunar Close-ups!

Start Date: 1st April 2018
End Date: 30th June 2018

Rules: This challenge is all about lunar closeups - we want to see lots of high magnification lunar details. Images, videos and sketches all welcome. Interesting compositions always get the judges attention! :)

Prize: £100 of FLO gift vouchers to buy some goodies with! Kindly provided by our sponsors FLO :) and a virtual trophy for your signature.



All data must be captured and processed by you (no collaborative entries). 
Data must be captured during the challenge start & end dates. 
Multiple entries are allowed but please start a new topic for each entry. 
Multiple submissions of the same image, processed differently, will not be accepted.


To enter please start a new topic with your image in the ‘Imaging Challenge #13 forum (each challenge will have it’s own). Please post as much information as possible - when it was taken, how it was captured and processed, etc. The info won't necessarily be used for judging but will help fellow SGLers looking to learn and improve their knowledge and technique.

Hi Matthew  - good start, but you should start a new thread for each image so it can be discussed individually. this thread is just to discuss the overall competition.

A doubt!
Before April 1st, images are not accepted in the challenge?
Only those that are made after that date?
Best regards
Avani Soares

@MatthewPeter1993 as mentioned, please start a new thread for each image in order for them to be considered. They must have been taken between the dates for the competition. Thanks!
