In celebration of the 20th anniversary of our Photo of the Week contest, SkyNews is buying time on the RASC Robotic Telescope, using it to gather amazing data and sharing it with our readers for free.
Each month, we will release data packages for one deep-sky object. Process the data, send it back to us and you’ll be entered into our astrophoto editing contest for the month. Our judges will choose the image that wins a SkyNews prize pack, including access to RASC Robotic Telescope data for the year.
