Hi everyone,

I’m delighted to announce that the winner of the May 2019 Object of the Month (NGC 5139 Centaurus A galaxy) is Igor Hodoba with the absolutely beautiful image attached. Other excellent entries were from David Armen (who managed several beautiful shots with a handheld iPhone!) and David Stevenson.

There were no articles entered this month so I’ll write something for the magazine.

Come along to the June meeting to see all the entries, or keep an eye out for the next Reflections magazine.

The upcoming targets are:

  • June 2019: NGC 3372 Eta Carinae nebula
  • July 2019: The Moon or its features (bonus points for smartphone shots)
  • August 2019: NGC 6514 M20 Trifid nebula
