andromeda galaxy: the neighbor, the image jointly taken by two chinese teenagers, was highlighted by laszlo francsics, chairman of the hungarian astrophotographers' association, the overall winner of the competition in 2019, and one of this year's judges.
"it is a superb capture by young astrophotographers, who also demonstrate their exceptional talent in processing a deep-sky photo," says francsics.
hanwen, one of the two chinese teenagers to win the young photographer award, says, "i think this photo shows how gorgeous our nearest neighbor is."
