Best readers’ astrophotos of 2019

Our pick of the top astrophotos sent in by readers over the past 12 months.

In each issue of BBC Sky at Night Magazine we receive a plethora of incredible astro images sent in by our readers across the globe, from images of planets, comets, and nightscapes to deep-sky views of star clusters, galaxies and nebulae.


Every month we select the best astro images to grace our Gallery section in the magazine, and have the tough job of choosing a winner out of the final shortlist.

Here we present the winning images of each issue over the past 12 months: a record of the incredible talent among our readers for capturing the cosmos.


If you fancy entering one of your astro images into our monthly competition for the chance to appear in the mag, we’d love to see your photos, whatever your ability or experience. Find out how to enter here.
