It is amazing to me the things a person can do by following their passions. Great Britain’s amateur astronomer Peter Shah has taken some amazing photographs of our universe from his garden shed.  

His set up set him back about 20,000 (that’s about $32,000 in USD)

He has some really amazing photos.  

The Leo Triplet The Pleiades M31-The Andromeda Galaxy

Check them all out at his web site and gallery.

Well done, Peter.


NASA put together a nice little “dance of the planets” video of Saturn’s moons as filmed by Cassini, put to the music of “The Nutcracker.”
