The Winning Entries of the Annual CWAS David Malin Awards

 Every year the Central West Astronomical Society holds their AstroFest, a celebration of all things astronomical in this universe and beyond the cosmos. In 2019, the Festival was held in collaboration and cooperation with CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) Parkes Observatory's Apollo 11 50th anniversary Open Days, held towards the end of July. The photography event was judged by a world-renowned astrophotographer, Dr. David Malin, after whom the awards have been named.

The main categories under which photographs for this award were shortlisted were Deep Sky, Nightscapes, Wide-Field, and the Solar System, in addition to an animated sequence, a themed category entitled “Memories of Apollo”, and a junior section for budding astrophotographers. These finalist photographs will take you into the night sky, among the stars, and to infinity and beyond!
