Every year the Royal Observatory in Greenwich holds a competition for the Astronomy Photographer of the year. Using everything from iPhones to infrared cameras and telescopes, professional and amateur photographers compete to see who can produce "the most beautiful and spectacular images of space and the cosmos". 

You can find all of the winners from the 2018 contest here, but in the meantime, have a look at some of our favourites.
