Syed Taha is a pediatric nurse, who once upon a time went to university and while becoming proficient at his medical arts also became entranced by the hobby of astronomy, so much so that he acquired his first telescope.
Years later, he is still enraptured by what the telescopic lens plays out to his eyes nightly. He is bewitched by what even a city sky can show a dedicated night voyeur. Because Taha believes that others are unaware of the beauty of distant nebulae and galaxies he posts his revelations online.
He wants the world to know that even in a smoggy and polluted world visions can still be captured and shared. Sharing with the young moves him the most, because he believes many children have never seen an untainted sky, or really envisioned what space might be like, millions of miles away.
The hobbyist astronomer sets up his scope in his garden and runs it from inside his house. His photos are so surreal to the viewers that ogle them online that he is constantly asked if they are indeed real.
