2003 SCT-Users Mailing List Imaging Contest
- Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen:
I am pleased to announce the official opening of the Third Annual
SCT-Users Mailing List Imaging Contest. This year's contest
promises to be the best so far in many ways. First, membership on
the SCT-Users Mailing List is at an all time high so the pool of
talented individuals is larger than ever. Second, we have some
wonderful sponsors lined up for the contest. More about our
sponsors in a separate e-mail. Third, Dave Cole, one of this year's
judges, has set aside web space and designed a home page for the
contest. You can view Dave's website at http://www.nexstar11.com
Fourth, we've expanded the categories to include submission of
digital images of both solar system and deep sky objects. This past
year has seen an explosion in the quality of digital images so
here's a chance for those talented folks to strut their stuff.
The contest website can be accessed at:
Contained on the website are the following: a listing of the
contest sponsors and links to their websites; the categories of the
contest set up as active links so a list member can get an
opportunity to view the contest entries as they are received by the
judges; the contest rules; a montage of the images from last year's
contest winners; a link to Uncle Rod's website; and, the entry form
in both PDF and html format.
Please submit all images to me at: ksbtk@... along with an
entry form. I will distribute them to the judges and Dave Cole will
post them on the website.
So fellow CAT Lovers - crack open those film canisters, power up
those CCD cameras and snap away with those digital cameras. We are
looking forward to some magnificent images. Give us your best shots.
