ECS Professor captures spectacular images of deep space
Professor Greg Parker's images of deep space have been described by astronomer Patrick Moore as 'of real scientific value as well as works of art'.
Greg Parker, who is a Professor in the ECS Nano research group, has established an international reputation for his images of deep space. The images are taken from his own observatory in the New Forest, and each requires many hours of processing to get such stunning effects. Along with his collaborator, Noel Carboni, he will soon be publishing a book of photographs of deep space, entitled Star Vistas. The eminent astronomer Patrick Moore has provided a foreword to the volume.
Professor Parker talks about the process of producing these images in our video podcast.
The book and images are featured in The Daily Mail, 27 November 2008.
