Hello all,

I hope this is allowed and also that it isn't too obnoxious of me to post it. But I want to share the joy with my medium format friends...

I have been lucky enough to be shortlisted in the Royal Observatory Greenwich 'Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2021' (run in conjunction with the BBC's Sky at Night Magazine and the National Maritime Museum in London).

You can see some of the shortlisted images here... Mine was taken with the Pentax 645Z and 25mm DA lens. My breath is taken away by some of the images I am up against, but it's still nice to be shortlisted.

All the best,
