Photos from Space

This photo of a Rosette Nebula light years from earth is being compared to the images taken by the $2.5 billion Hubble space telescope. But Peter Shaw from England took this photo with an eight inch telescope sticking out of his garden shed roof. His telescope is connected to his home computer, with the total set up costing him $20K.
