Robert Harrison got some pretty good pictures. He did it with a weather balloon, a used digital camera he picked up on eBay and some duct tape.   His camera rises to altitudes of about 20 miles over the English countryside. The price per flight: about $750.

Unbelievable, but true: this picture was taken with an ordinary digital camera from a height of 20 kilometers.
