From cosmic dust to nebula reflections, these are the winners of one of Australia’s most prestigious astrophotography awards.

Stars aligned for some of Australia’s best astronomy photographers at the weekend, with the announcement of the winners of this year’s David Malin Awards.

Operating annually since 2005, the competition acknowledges the technical skill required to “capture the beauty of the sky and the intrinsic interest of astronomy in an aesthetically pleasing manner”.
