Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year is the largest international competition of its kind. Organised by the Royal Observatory Greenwich and sponsored by Insight Investment, the competition receives entries from photographers all around the world. It annually showcases the best space photography from a global community of astrophotographers.

I was hoping for a clear sky with little atmospheric distortion to try a difficult capture of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) crossing in front of the Sun. I was also keen to see Hubble pass next to solar sunspot region AR 2712. The image was manually composited into a single photo to show the HST transit path using 80 individual frames captured from a 4K video sequence. All settings were manual and the HST transited from left to right across the Sun.
