Lexy spent her formative years taking a lot of photos and dreaming in technicolour. Nothing much has changed now she's covering all things photography related for CNET.

Astrophotography isn't a field you hear about every day; it takes patience, precision and dedication to produce stunning images.

In July 2010, the Central West Astronomical Society (CWAS) hosted a competition inviting entries from photographers and astronomers. The following photographs were all entered into the David Malin Awards, named after Australia's most prestigious astrophotographer, David Malin.

The 2010 competition had six categories, ranging from Deep Sky, Solar System to video. Images and videos were judged on the basis of artistic merit and their ability to capture the "intrinsic interest of astronomy".

To see more of these images, head to the 2010 CWAS Astrophotography competition page.

Hey RK,

You'll have to get in touch with the CWAS and photographers themselves (via the link above) if you want to track down a larger size.
