READER Robert Chadwick sent in this stunning picture of Orion's Belt, taken not from the top of some mountain but from his garden in Royal Lane, Hillingdon.
Unable to afford top quality camera equipment until recently, 23-year-old precision engineer Robert says he has recently invested in a £2,000 camera to help with his burgeoning hobby.
“It’s something I have been interested in for years but I have only just recently had the resources,” he said.
Robert is not a member of any astronomical society or club and prefers to do his own thing, travelling some distance to find areas where light pollution is minimised.
He has also hooked his camera up to a telescope and taken video of the rings of Saturn.
BBC2 is screening Stargazing Live all this week to get more people interested in astronomy.
