The David Malin Astrophotography Awards


The David Malin Astrophotography Awards

Having taken my astrophotography to a new level in the last couple of years (courtesy of having had a real job in the UK for five years), and now having returned to Oz last year, I entered a bunch of my astro-images to the fourth annual David Malin astrophotography awards, hosted by the Central West Astronomical Society in Parkes, NSW.

I'm very pleased to say that I won three honourable mentions in two categories. Above are the three images that David Malin chose out of my submissions, and below is me shaking hands with the man himself:

The awards have their own homepage with all the winning images and lots of smiling people shaking hands and receiving prizes:

Many of the photos are going to tour observatories round the country over the next year. All the details on the AstroFest website. Thanks to John Sarkissian and everybody else who put so much effort in to make it all possible.
