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.
