John Dawson is awarded the judges’ national prize for his clever image from within the instrument housing of the Royal Observatory Edinburgh’s telescope.
Inside the now-decommissioned instrument chamber of a 1930s-era 36-inch telescope at the Royal Observatory Edinburgh, home to STFC’s UK Astronomy Technology Centre. Once at the cutting edge of astronomy, the telescope is dwarfed by its modern successors with the latest under construction with a 39-metre mirror.
