Feb 2019 Object of the month winners

3 03 2019

Hi everyone,

I’m delighted to announce the winners of the February 2019 Object of the Month competition (NGC 1365 Great Barred Spiral Galaxy). The best image is from Chris Vaughan and is attached below. The image runner ups are Greg McCall, David Stevenson and Phil Angilley. The article winner is Greg McCall. Great work all! Everything will be published in the next issue of Reflections.

Now for March onwards, we’ll be announcing targets 3 months in advance to give everyone more of a chance to capture the target and more time to process their images, and so that there is a range of difficulties of targets available. You can submit your articles any time between the announcement of the targets and the month specified.

The targets for the next 3 months are:
•March 2019: M1 Crab Nebula
•April 2019: NGC 5139 Omega Centauri (globular cluster)
•May 2019: NGC 5128 Centaurus A (galaxy)

Please send your images (with a short description of how it was taken) or articles to me at bpetschel@gmail.com.

Cheers,
Ben Petschel
