Brian May, Alex Cherney and Greg Parker at the Parador Turismo hotel Teide National Park.

It is evening and the Sun is setting fast now.  Having disturbed Brian’s peaceful contemplation of the beautiful Sunset behind the distant caldera I added insult to injury by getting a photo opportunity in as as well.  Sorry Brian 🙂

Alex Cherney won the astrophotography competition with a stunning time-lapse sequence taken in the Australian outback.  As a prize Alex not only received a trip to the Starmus Festival, he also got an hour’s imaging time on the biggest telescope in the world – the GTC on La Palma.  And no I was not the slightest bit jealous or envious as I let Alex know through the whole of the Festival 🙂

Congratulations Alex – I look forward to seeing your image of the Arp galaxy.
