here`s my effort of the horse head nebula and Flame, seem to have spent more time messing with the kit than using it just lately, but seem to have it all sorted now, fingers crossed.

This month I had the task of deciding a winner from the 9 entries in the November PoTM.


So congratulations to Red Dwalf for his Horse Head Nebula and Flame.


This image is now the second entrant into the EMS Photo of the Year competition.

well what can i say,

many thanks for the comments and thanks Noel for selecting me form the November contenders, there were some lovely entries to the November selections and some very good first attempts of M42 which where very impressive, i`m looking forward to having a go at M42 if the weather ever starts to play ball.

well done to all the entrants and lets hope for some lovely December entries.
