MartinB Posted December 14, 2022 Share Posted December 14, 2022 This challenge has produced a wonderful range of images, from wide expanses of dusty space to close up emission nebulae. As usual the standard has been exceptionally high giving us the usual judging headache. It always feels unpleasant to be limited to 3 winners but for good or ill we have made our selection. 1) AbsolutelyN - LDN 1251 This image has a real sense of depth. Superbly processed 2) Fegato - VdB152, Barnard 175, SNR110.3 + 11.3, Dengel-Hartl5 planetary nebula This image epitomises what is so special about this area of sky. Here we have dark, reflection and emission nebulosity superbly pulled together to make a stunning picture 3) Lee-P - The Elephant's Trunk Nebula As expected, there were some superb emission nebula images. This version of the Elephant's Trunk manages to to be impactful whilst avoiding appearing over processed. 11 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
