They are some of the most stunning shots of the night sky ever taken, and what's more they were captured from a Hampshire back garden.

Astronomer Professor Greg Parker has taken detailed photographs of everything from star clusters to nebula producing some of the clearest images of space ever seen.

The images were all captured from Prof Parker's own observatory in his garden in Brockenhurst.

They are now being exhibited at a special show called Starscapes II in Brockenhurst.
