Royal Observatory Astronomy Photographer of the Year

The Royal Observatory Greenwich has announced the winners of the Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2011 – and they have a free exhibition of the winning shots.  Personally my favourites are among the Deep Space category  [There’s a surprise… – Ed].  All the entries can be viewed on the Flickr Astrophoto group.  And it’s worth taking the time [6min 17sec] to watch the, unfortunately unembeddable, BBC audio slideshow of some of the winning images.  Wondrous.
