Shorlisted images on the Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2021 competition!

[ Versión en español ] I am more than delighted to announce that not one, but two of the images I submitted to the Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2021 competition have been shortlisted under the special Annie Maunder Prize for Image Innovation category , first introduced in the 2020 edition. In this category the objective is to achieve an innovative image taking advantage of publicly accessible data captured by professional telescopes, being able to combine different sources (NASA, ESA, ESO, etc.). Shortlisted images will be exhibited in the Royal Observatory Museum in Greenwich and that they will appear in the astrophotography book that the Museum publishes each year . Oh my, I don't believe it yet!! Thanks so much to Royal Museums Greenwich for hosting the competition and to Insight Investment for supporting astronomy! And of course, to NASA, who provided the data for these images! They wouldn't have been possible without the effort of the people who built those space
