17th May: SAS Astrophotography Competition 2020 (via Facebook)

Hi everyone,
We hope you are all bearing up in these strange times.
The month of May is traditionally the time of our society astrophotography competition. We have been considering if we can still do this this year and we think it will be possible via Facebook.
We want to keep this simple so we invite our full society members to post their images in the comments section of this post. We can then all vote for the images we like via the ‘like” option.
Some simple rules apply, so please read.
  1.  The competition is open to entries from now and closes to new entries at 8pm Friday 15th May.
  2. Voting will close at 8pm on Sunday 17th May.
  3. The most likes will determine the winners.
  4. We will follow the same categories as usual.
    Beginner and Advanced, Solar System and Deep sky. Also the best image taken with a mobile phone.
  5. The competition is open to entries from full society members only, (any images posted by non members will be removed) and images should have been taken in the last 12 months, however voting is open to all in our Facebook group.
  6. You can vote for, (like) as many images as you wish. All of the “like” imogis’ (👍😀❤ etc.) will count as 1 vote.
  7.  When entering your image please state:- Name of the subject, date taken, equipment used, and whether you’re a beginner (astro imaging for less than a year) or advanced. Create a new post for each image you enter.
  8. Any comments other than those attached to the image will be removed.
Good luck everyone. Let’s see you photos.
Prizes will be the all important winner and runner up certificates.
