'Smartest person alive' Stephen Hawking now becomes astrophotographer

Washington: Stephen Hawking, who is widely thought to be the smartest person alive, has now become the astrophotographer too as he recently captured beautiful cosmic photos with his new telescope.

Hawking posted a handful of photos to Facebook that he captured with the 11-inch Celestron telescope, the Verge reported.

The model that the 73-year-old has used was built for more than just stargazing, as it could be hooked up to a laptop and can automatically track objects as they move through the sky. Those features combined with an 11-inch mirror make it possible to capture photos of anything from details of the moon to distant galaxies.
