Comet Photo Challenge
And Lucky Draw Winners
I want to thank the two contenders who participated. Hopefully we can get more photo’s entered in future challenges.
The winner of our Comet challenge, a R200 gift voucher, is Steve Barrow (Photo 2). The challenge was to capture Comet Lemmon and 47 Tucanae in the same field, and this is exactly what he did!
I must also congratulate Johan Retief on the excellent photo that he took of Comet Lemmon. The contrast is better than the winning photo, but by Johan’s own admission, it does not include 47 Tucanae.
The winner of the Comet Challenge Voter's Lucky draw, a R100 Gift voucher, is Marc Kleynhans. Thank you for all who participated.
