Greg Bilinski (Y11) has developed an expertise in astrophotography and using a telescope and a mobile phone he has managed to take some incredible photographs of space.

The photographs include the Orion Nebula (photograph with article) which is one of the brightest nebulae in the sky, one of the nearest star-forming regions to Earth, and is approximately 1,400 light years away.

Further photographs – which can be viewed on our Twitter account – include Saturn (1591.1 million km away from Earth), Jupiter and its moons (815.3 million km away from Earth), and our own Moon.

Matt Allman, Headteacher, said: “We were hugely impressed when we learnt what Greg had achieved and we knew lots of people would enjoy seeing what could be achieved. One of the best things about my job is there is an endless capacity to be impressed by young people – this is a fantastic example of just this.”
