Meet the Judges

Doug MacDonald

A member of Victoria RASC, retired, a former journalist and photographer. 

I grew up in Northern Ontario where the stars were always brilliant. Fascinated by astronomy since taking a freshman astronomy course at university. 

I’ve been doing astrophotography seriously for 12 years, with many years of visual before that.

A member of the Calgary RASC, retired project manager.  

Built my first Newtonian telescope when I was 14 years old through a workshop at the Calgary planetarium.  Although I have had a lifelong fascination with the night sky, I’ve only been doing astrophotography for about 10 years. I image from my backyard observatory.
