David Malin Awards
The NSW Central West Astronomical Society held its annual astrophotography competition last month. Amateur astro-photographers from around Australia submitted entries for consideration in the prestigious David Malin Awards. The winner in the Wide-Field category was Troy Casswell with the image above.The citation for the award read "The Gum Nebula is a very faint and large cloud of glowing gas, extending over 30 degrees across the southern sky. All this makes it extremely difficult to photograph, and Troy Casswell's image is the best I have ever seen." (Image credit: 2020 CWAS David Malin Awards and Troy Casswell)
