100 Hours of Astronomy - Telescope Competition Application
We invite everyone to submit this application to win a telescope that can be used for the 100 Hours of Astronomy event. The telescope is a refractor Bresser 90/900 and will be delivered with a special mount, custom-made by ATM group “kijkerbouw VSRUG” (Ghent Belgium) for the project SSVI. The equipment comes complete with telescope tube, viewfinder, zenith prism, one accompanying eyepiece plössl 25mm and the mount. This telescope can be used to observe the Moon, the planets of our Solar System, some of their moons, and the most bright Messier objects (for example the Orion Nebula, globular clusters and binary stars).

-Submission is open to entries from any country
-Submissions will be judged on creativity, impact, feasibility and sustainability of project. Please note: the telescopes are meant for educational and outreach activities, not for individual use.
-Only one entry per group/individual will be accepted
-The closing date for the competition is 5 October 2018. As long as it is 5 October somewhere in the world, applications will be accepted. Winners will be announced by late-October 2018 with distribution of the telescopes shortly thereafter.
-Winning entries will be asked to provide photographs of their use of the telescope, including during the 100 Hours of Astronomy event.
-Winners will be sent a telescope (in several packages) with a tracking number. Information about the educational value of the telescope will be included. The recipient of the telescope will be responsible for any local expenses (like customs taxes).
