See spectacular, award-winning photographs of the night sky from the last 24 months as judged by world-renowned astrophotographer Dr David Malin. This competition encourages photographers to use their vision, imagination and skill to produce inspiring and beautiful images of the sky.
A free exhibition open to all, images on display include an extensive view of the Eta Carinae nebula, revealing red hydrogen gas and dark, obscuring clouds. Other photographs reveal shimmering auroral patterns, a Moonrise over Cape Byron lighthouse and a glowing green comet snapped from our Sydney sky.
The Central West Astronomical Society organise the David Malin Awards as part of their annual AstroFest held at Parkes, NSW. The support of CSIRO’s Australia Telescope National Facility is acknowledged, along with that of printing partner SUNSTUDIOS. There are eight award categories plus an Australasian Sky Guide Cover Award from the Powerhouse Museum.
