Have you recently taken a truly stellar astronomical photo? Completed a sketch that is out of this world? 

 
Then consider submitting your work for inclusion in the 2014 edition of the RASC Observer's Calendar. Astronomical images and sketches of all types are welcomed, including deep sky, solar system, and dramatic astronomical-themed landscapes.
 
Images can be prime focus, piggyback, eyepiece projection, or fixed tripod; and recorded on a digital/CCD camera, film, or webcam. Submitted images must be of sufficient quality and resolution to reproduce well at 9.5" x 12" and must be compatible with the "landscape" orientation of the calendar images. Generally, this will mean a resolution of at least 1200 pixels tall. We will also consider making a mosaic of lunar/planetary webcam captured images or sketches (so as not to-over magnify an individual image for publication).
 
If you already have a gallery of images on your website, you are welcome to send the URL to editor Paul Gray, but please be sure to direct him to your favourites. Both well-known and obscure objects are published in the calendar, but to avoid having the same objects used too often, he will be screening for those that may have appeared in recent years.
 
To submit, email jpeg versions of your images (or your website link and suggestions) to snpgray (at) gmail (dot) com. If your image is selected, full resolution tiff versions will later be required.
 
Move fast stargazers, the deadline for submissions to the 2014 Calendar is May 15, 2013!
