1. CMHASD Calendar 2015

The society would like to thank trustee & publicity officer Honor Wheeler for all her hard work and effort organising the calendar and the running of the calendar competition for members.

The final of the competition was held on the 27th November 2014 and it was another successful year as there were many entries by CMHASD members of their photos for the calendar.

Members took a vote for the photos they wanted in the CMHASD calendar 2015 and you can see the 12 winners below.

Once the 12 winners had been decided, CMHASD members then voted for the overall winner of the calendar competition and the clear winner was Arthur Cockburn for his photograph of Hale Bopp - Congratulations Arthur!

Fred Bear aka Ursa Major


Fred Bear aka Ursa Major is one very proud bear because not only did his photo win one of the CMHASD Calendar 2014 competition sections - December - it also launched his modelling career too. Fred Bear would therefore like to invite you to go and look at the other calendar competition section winners as they are really rather good......and meet his partner Mini Moo aka Ursa Minor.

Below are the 12 winning images that were voted by CMHASD members to be used in the CMHASD 2014 calendar.

Member Martin Crow won the competition overall with his spectacular image of the M31 Andromeda Galaxy. Martin's prize was a free copy of the calendar and a signed copy of the book 'The Cosmic Tourist' written by Dr Brian May (bass guitarist of the rock band 'Queen'), Sir Patrick Moore & Chris Lintott.

Click on the images below to see a larger view and information about each image written by their respective owners.

The society would also like to thank publicity officer Honor Wheeler for all her hard work and effort with the organising and the running of the competition. It was so successful - with many entries - that members asked for the competition to take place again this year - and it is!!!!
