    Updated information:
    Friday Oct 30, 2020,
    Today, I willingly accepted the decision that my images are to be excluded from Astrobin’s TOP PICK and IOTD competitions because they are believed to be "not honest", so this means you will not see my images win a TOP PICK and/or an IOTD anymore.

    One: My goal in uploading to Astrobin was not solely TOP PICKs and/or IOTDs, it was and still is making a better astrophotography around the world.
    Two: ... and I insist, all my images are 100% legit and all my tech cards are 100% accurate.
    Three: If you see any issue in any of my images please let me know and I will learn and improve. Allow me not to expose my processing techniques but I can say that many are missing a lot by sticking to conventional processing ways!
    Four: I respect Astrobin and I will keep uploading images here.
    Five: I will win more APODs!
