Along the way he has devised novel ways of extracting more information from photographs. These techniques have led to some interesting astronomical discoveries as well as being useful advances in photographic science. They have been incorporated into a method of making a series of unique three-colour astronomical photographs, many of which reveal the unsuspected beauty and glorious colour of astronomical objects. He received the Lennart Nilsson Award for this in September 2000.
