Stargazer snaps stunning outer space images

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A self-taught amateur space photographer has captured a set of incredible images from his garden in Greater Manchester.

Baz Beswick, of Denton, said he found it "mind-blowing" to be able to glimpse distant worlds and galaxies.

His detailed photographs include the Rosette Nebula, which lies some 5,000 light years away.

That's amazing, and through the normally overcast foggy weather in Britain? Wow.

Nice work, but .... they didn't exactly explain the nature and expense of the very impressive equipment setup he has.  This is not something Joe Average is going to get anywhere near without a LOT of money spent.

Looks like about £4k if all new kit at UK prices.

And then there is light pollution to deal with. 

I would say he has a good feel for how to get the best from the equipment and image processing. 

Great images. :tu:
