M 72 by Judith Prana
Prize: 25 credits

Comment from the judges: With a good histogram stretch and colour correction, Judith Prana created our winning one-click beginner competition this month. The image is slightly oversharpened which introduced artefacts in the centre of the clutter, something that is very easy to do when there is so much detail

Expert Tier

Comment from the judges: Georg Nyman created a great colour-calibrated and good contrast adjustment image of M72 with conservative sharpening and detail management.

Comment from the judges: NGC 247 is a great target to challenge astrophotographer's processing abilities, Walter Borghini has created a great image of NGC 247 a well-balanced stretch to bring out all the details of the galaxy. A more conservative sharpening approach would improve the aesthetic.
