A paediatrician has described how his love of space observation has grown during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Syed Tahar, from Oadby in Leicestershire, has taken detailed pictures of phenomena like Comet Neowise and the pinwheel galaxy Messier 101 – located more than 20 million light years away – from his back garden.

He said astrophotography – the art of capturing the night sky on camera – was something he could use “to get away from life’s daily stresses”.
