Winner! The Young Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2013

Journal, Photography, Science Tech

The winners of the Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2013 Competition are announced! I entered this year, and made it to the finals. Yesterday, they announced that I not only won a  Highly Commended, but I won the Young Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2013 (-16 category)! The Highly Commended photo is a photo of a waxing crescent Moon. I took it through my Orion AstroView 6 EQ, at F/5. I took multiple photos with my Nikon D3100 DSLR, and stacked them.

The winning image is an image of the Milky Way. This was taken with my Nikon D3100, with an 18mm F/3.5 lens at F/3.5,  a 288 second exposure, and processed in Adobe Lightroom.
