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

Observatory visitors centre, and a second exhibition will also travel to selected
venues around Australia
