The Royal Observatory, Greenwich has just announced the winners, runner ups and highly commended entries for this year’s contest.
The entire list can be seen on the Royal Museum’s winners page here and in person at an exhibit. Below are those that I really liked – displayed with permission, of course.
Simeis 147 Supernova Remnant
by Rogelio Bernal Andreo (DeepSkyColors.com)
Like me, Rogelio is a San Francisco Bay Area resident. Obviously Mr. Andreo has mad skills and dedication to astrophotography. See his portfolio for more work.
You can view a slides show of all the photos submitted to the contest here. Warning: There are a LOT of them – 688 in the over teen category (I’d call it adult, but that word seems to have a different connotation).
