Amazing garden shed astronomical images

This post will depart somewhat from my usual content but I recently have come across some truly astonishing “amateur” astronomical images by Peter Shah of the UK.  As you can see from the images, Mr. Shah is anything but an amateur.

The images were made through “…an ORION OPTICS UK AG8 Astrograph. A fully corrected 8 inch f3.8 Newtonian, mounted on a Losmandy G11 with Gemini computer.” Full details, plus an additional 26 images, can be found at the link below the picture which is of  IC1318 in Cygnus.

Special thanks to Mr. Shah  for his permission to display  the picture here.
