Not getting out as much as I would like so my contribution this month is my large image scale white light picture of the sun from a Sunday's observing at the start of the month (Sun White Light 07/06/2015)

Nikon D5000, best 13 of 333 frames.
ED80 and 2x Barlow (hence large image scale!)
Processed in PIPP, stacked in Registax 5.1 and wavelets, post processing in CS2

Well I thought I was going to get off lightly with PoTM this month but some last minute entries yesterday have certainly made things harder for me ( I will let you off Ron for submitting it today ;)  )


 


Andyboy1970 provided a nice full disc solar shot producing some nice groupings, Steven Whattley produced a stunner of a lunar shot, the contrast, clarity and detail on the first quarter moon were fantastic - I would be over the moon (sorry  :facepalm:  ) with that one.  Next up was Philjay's study of AR2371 sun spot groupings, nicely done there Phil, then next up was an unusual picture taken by the MPOLE and the students of The Long Eaton School's "Family Astronomy Club".  Cracking picture, never seen anything like that before and I was very impressed with what you can do with some black paint, gaffa tape and an old tin can - cracking stuff!  Johnnyaardvark produced a nice white light full disc solar shot, nice groupings you caught there and then Ibbo produced an absolute belter of an image of our closest star, the detail there is just stunning.  Next was Tasking and Ron Clarke giving us some nice shots of the Venus / Jupiter conjunction, well done chaps.


 


So onto a winner.


 


It has been a tough decision, somebody had it nailed until the late flood of entries yesterday just managed to pip them to the post, so this months picture of the month winner is.................................


 


 


 


Ibbo and his super close up solar shot.


 


Well done Steve and well done also to everybody else, some truly cracking photos there people, please keep them coming.


 


:thumbsup::notworthy:
