Beauty of space: spectacular Australian photographs of the universe

From the hidden colours of the moon to Bonnie Doon, and Tarantula Nebula to Saturn, these spectacular images of the universe are the finalists in the 2016 CWAS ‘David Malin’ awards. The annual competition, which celebrates the best astronomy images taken by Australian photographers, is part of AstroFest 2016. The winners will be announced on 16 July. An associated exhibition opens the following day at the CSIRO Parkes Observatory visitors centre, and a second exhibition will also travel to selected venues around Australia
