Capturing the universe from the New Forest

Just down the road from me, Greg Parker, a fifty-four-year-old engineering professor and amateur astronomer, has captured spectacular and rare wide-field astronomical images with a small observatory in his garden.

They are the result of his skill, Noel Carboni's ability in processing images and Parker's intense dedication.

Going out night after night to his 11- inch telescope and a specialised digital camera in the New Forest, he has recorded photographs of the universe that rival those from NASA telescopes. They have now been published in the book Star Vistas.
