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.
"This photo is a composite of three separate photos: one for the light trails so that they would be clean and tight; two others to expose the surrounding trees and the stars.

Raymond M. Manalo, 2017
