O.K. it looks like there is enough interest out there to make a start on this one 🙂
Please send your best image through to email@example.com in jpeg format. Please DO NOT send through a full resolution image, although it is fine if you supply the link to a full resolution image, I will post that up together with your low resolution image. The maximum number of pixels along the longest side of your image should be less than or equal to 1500.
I won’t kick off the Astronomy Picture of the Day until there are enough images in the hard store to guarantee the thing won’t disappear for months on end just days after starting – so if you send an image in shortly – please be patient, it may be a while until it appears.
Get sending 🙂
