Hey all you starry-eyed shutterbugs out there. Celestron and Discover magazine are sponsoring an astrophotograpy contest this month. The rules include a stipulation that the images must be taken through Celestron optics, but other than that, it can be any picture of any astronomical subject matter! The contest is being judged by Phil Plait, so anything interesting and unusual (astronomical paredolia, anyone?) will surely be a good entry.
I’ll update on my crazy week of travel a bit later, but for now, go check out Carnivals of Space 103 and 104 and 105. A note on that last one… congrats to Ian O’Neill on becoming the new producer of Discovery Space! I wish the best to both he and Dave Mosher on their new jobs
