Astrophotography CompetitionIt is that time of the year again, the Sunderland Astronomical Society’s Astrophotography Competition will held on Sunday 18th May 2014, from 7:00 pm, where the best of our SAS astrophotography images will be displayed and voted on at this competition event.
Traditionally, this is our end-of-season meeting and consequently enjoys something of a more relaxed atmosphere.

For example.:
  • Solar System : Beginner;
  • Solar System : Advanced;
  • Wide field : Beginner;
  • Wide field : Advanced;
  • Deep Sky : Beginner;
  • Deep Sky : Advanced;
and a winner and runners-up photos will be voted on for each category class.
The winners will receive prizes & the highly prized SAS Astrophotography certificates,
& the runners-up will receive the highly prized certificates.
Note 1: To submit your photos for the competition, bring them with you on the night of the competition or submit them to our chairman before the event.
