A Grantham businessman who was “bitten by the astro bug” has shared these incredible photographs.

Steve Parker, 53, of Sandon Road, used a powerful telescope to take these pictures of various nebulas and galaxies in the universe.

He regularly uploads his images to Instagram as ‘steveparker63’.

Self-employed Steve, who owns ETC Removals and Storage, began taking astro pictures in 2013 after striking up a friendship with like-minded people in The White Swan pub in Barrowby.

He added: “I started taking astro pics with the help of the two Daves, etc who meet up informally on a Friday night in the Swan pub.

“I started with just a telescope and then was bitten by the astro bug from there.”
