ELLIJAY, Georgia (CNN) -- One of the largest privately owned observatories in the world belongs to a 36-year-old man who fell in love with the stars during his childhood.

From his perch in Georgia's hills, Tim Puckett takes pictures of galaxies, stars, comets, and other heavenly bodies.

CNN's John Holliman ventured up to Ellijay to check out Puckett's observatory.
