A Distant Visitor: This image is a tight 1 degree x 1 degree examination of comet C/2020 F8 SWAN, the tail extends well over 5 times the length shown here. Unfortunately it is a non-periodic comet, meaning it will not return to our skies once it fades. This image was taken under Bortle 6 skies, which was as dark as I could get given the COVID travel restrictions.Rohan use the SkyWatcher 190mm Maksutov Newtonian to take this amazing image. skywatcheraustralia.com.au/maksutov/Congratulations to all that were shortlisted by Trevor.

Jose Luis Cantabrana Garcia from NSW was awarded silver for his entry into the 2021 Skywatcher Astrophotographer of the Year. Chosen by our judge @astrobackyardPlease visit his page to see more of his amazing work www.instagram.com/jl_cantabranagarcia/Jose says “ I am a self taught photographer based in Sydney, in love with the power that nature holds and mesmerised with its endless changing beauty. I truly believe my photography is a complex visual representation of what I feel, resulting in greatly determined images by my emotions. I am always willing to push boundaries to capture those unique scenes, of the raw untamed wilderness, that the world has to offer. Although capturing those moments can be daunting and scary sometimes, facing these challenges leads to a deep feeling of being alive and develops an emotional connection with those elements and scenes that surround me at that time. As an educator, I feel grateful for being able to share these moments with others and show them the way to develop their own style and love for photography so they can experience the same joy that I feel when I'm behind the camera.Jose owns the Skywatcher Star Adventurerskywatcheraustralia.com.au/star-adventurer/Congratulations to all that were shortlisted by Trevor.
