Hello ROG Team

Martin Pugh here and I have awoken to fabulous news!

I am absolutely delighted and I want to thank you and of course the Judges for nominating M51 as both the Deep Sky and Overall Competition winner.

I tried so very hard to stay awake and join the announcements on Twitter, but 2am came around and with 2 hours to go and work the next day, I had to retire. I hope you are not disappointed.

Many, many thanks again.

Martin, your win was well deserved. Absolutely beautiful. If it doesn't inspire people to wonder about the heavens something's broken!


The winners page is here, by the way:
Congratulations to Martin and all our other winners! It's been another amazing year for the competition.

We'll be posting links to the press coverage a bit later today.

Thanks again for the continued support from the community.

I saw that I have won the youth astrophotography competition. Thank you to all of the judges. According to your website, it said I was supposed to receive an email yesterday but I have received nothing.
