AlexPhotography





These stunning photos on the universe are the finalists during the 2016 CWAS “David Malin Awards“. The annual level of competition, which celebrates the top astronomy images taken by Australian photographers, is an element of AstroFest 2016. The winners will likely be declared on sixteen July. An involved exhibition opens the subsequent day with the CSIRO Parkes Observatory guests centre, and also a second exhibition may even journey to chose venues around Australia.

This year’s competition had eight categories:

  • Deep Sky
  • Wide-Field
  • Nightscapes
  • Solar System
  • Animated Sequences:
    • Scientific
    • Aesthetic
  • Themed Section – “Light Pollution: The Bad and the Beautiful”
  • Junior (18 years old or younger)

The photographs were judged by world-renowned astrophotographer, Dr David Malin, without David being aware of the identity of the photographers. The winners will be presented with the “David Malin Awards” in the presence of invited dignitaries, during the CWAS AstroFest conference dinner on 16 July 2016.
