Thanks for joining the "proposal board" by the way. Perhaps we'll now get something done.
Firstly, make a decision.

Here's mine.

All entries process their own data.

Three main catagories;
Hobby -data from (not made) their own gear -earn no income from gear -own processing.

Semi professional/data processing- use data gained from pro & semi pro gear. The gear from where ever earns income. -entry does processing.

Professional- working in industry-professional gear -entry does processing.

Hobby category;
junior -U16 any non-professional gear -own processing
Adult -Small scope upto 12"
Adult -Large scope over 12'

Also Educational
-Any project of images that best illustrates an Astronomical concept.
Under this I would enter Semi pro category and get flogged.
