SGL 2023 Challenge 10 - Planets and Special Events


Recommended Posts

A small number of entries for this challenge but the quality was outstanding.  As always, some tricky calls for the judges.

1) Venus

What a wonderful daytime image!  Kon used IR and UV filters mapping IR to red, UV to blue and created a synthetic green.  Beautiful! Taken with a hand controlled 8" dob!!!

2) Geoff Lewis - Jupiter with IO transit

Io transit with the GRS just coming into view.  Sensitively processed.  A great image!

3) Nigella Bryant - Uranus

Uranus has been well placed during this challenge but it is a long way away!  A fabulous long focal length image.

Well done to everyone who took part

Thanks for the first place, I never expected it. Congratulations to both Nigella and Geof as well.  Not an easy planetary season for any of us but we managed some decent images.

We did indeed Kon, weather was definitely against us here in the UK with storm after storm this autumn and winter. However, we overcame, 😆

Congratulations to all three of you and indeed to everyone who entered. Hopefully I'll get to the skill level and confidence to perhaps take part in the apparitions to come.

I was very pleased to find this waiting for me when I returned home after my replacement hip surgery done on Wednesday (14/02).

Thank you.

Wishing you a speedy recovery Geoff. Take it easy for the first week's and allow yourself to heal.

Congratulations to Kostas, Geof & Nigella for producing work of such a high standard considering how bad the weather has been this planetary season.

Its a shame the planetary challenge wasn't a month earlier to allow more time on Jupiter 🙂

Love the mug Geof! Best wishes with your recovery! 👍
