After over 22,000 votes were cast, the People's Choice Award 2019 from the Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition has been revealed – and it's absolutely stunning. The astro photography photo that won the hearts and eyes of thousands of people came from Miguel Claro and consists of 120 separate images.

'The Titanium Moon' is a high-resolution mosaic composed of four panels, each one made from 30 images, combined together to reveal a sharp and detailed surface. The color was also slightly boosted to show differences in the chemical constitution of the lunar surface and changes in mineral content that produce subtle color variations in reflected light.
