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!

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.
