Only 2 entries for October, Philjay and Sunny Phil.

Ibbo has been busy this month, giving us a near daily dose of our nearest star, shame it has been a tad on the quiet side.....   ;) 


  • Widefield


Philjay provided the sole entry this month, giving us a lovely wide field view of the Andromeda and Perseus regions.


But as normal, there can be only one winner, and this months winner of PoTM is............................................


@wolfman_55 picture of Stephens Quintet and NGC7331.




I like this as it gives a fantastic wide view of this region of space, there is loads going off with a number of NGC's and you have also managed to capture some detail in the large galaxy NGC7331, top stuff.




Congrats to all, you didn't make it easy, keep it coming guys and gals, especially now the clocks have gone back and the dark nights are upon us.

If only we had more clear skies........
