Sep 12, 2020 1 min, 9 secs

The overall wining image was this one (above) from French photographer Nicolas Lefaudeux, which beat thousands of amateur and professional photographers from around the globe to win the $13,000 top prize.

“To most of us, our closest neighbouring galaxy Andromeda can also feel so distanced and out of reach, yet to create a photograph that gives us the impression that it is just within our physical reach is truly magical,” said competition judge Ed Robinson.

However, it wasn’t an easy competition to judge this year.

“The global situation made judging and shortlisting extremely challenging this year, particularly with judges spread across different countries,” said Dr Emily Drabek-Maunder, Astronomer at Royal Museums Greenwich and judge for the competition.

Lefaudeux’s incredible image scooped the overall prize, but also took the title in the “galaxies” category.

“The star in the centre of the image is the Albireo double star, surrounded by the trails of moving satellites.

“This image shows the really close alignment of the Moon and Jupiter that happened on 31 October 2019 ...

Note also the presence of Alpha Centuari on the left of the image as well as our immense galaxy, the Milky Way.”

“The image shows the central region of the California Nebula (NGC 1499)

This gigapixel image of the Milky Way, showing around 84 million stars, is reworked into a sculptural ‘affective space’ that affords a bodily and imaginative engagement with the viewer
