ZWO ASIWEEK Picture of the WEEK Competition is an international contest open to all astrophotography lovers who are in possession of ASI cameras. It is held every week in the Facebook ZWO ASI Cameras group. Hundreds, and thousands of breathtaking astrophotos have been exhibited to the public ever since it was started in 2019 for the first edition. To thank all the participants for their hard work, and to show more people the beauty of the universe, here we include some of the images of each edition and reveal the equipment and acquisition information. Hope we are having more and more amateurs joining in the community in the future.
The winner of ASIWEEK #31/2020 is Kong Yangshik. Congratulations!
