Awards for 2009
Bryce Heartwell Memorial Award for Excellence in Astroimaging
Mike Noble

2009_astro_imager This individual has spent countless hours at the telescope capturing beautiful images of the celestial objects out there. His dedication is, in my mind, borderline crazy as he spends most clear nights at some dark sky site somewhere in Alberta in the middle of nowhere imaging, and then goes to work. I don’t know how he doesn’t fall asleep at his desk every day. There is no arguing with the results though. Such dedication easily shows in every stunning image he presents. He has shown his images at our meetings as well as to everyone at the Observer’s meeting every month. Everyone who has seen his images will agree with me that the Bryce Heartwell Memorial Award for Excellence in Astroimaging must be presented to Mike Noble.
