My astrophotography

I’ve been taking photos of the night sky for nearly 25 years now, and my images have appeared in books, magazines and on TV all over the world.

I started out in astrophotography using film, but today use modern DSLRs and astronomical CCDs to capture pictures of a range of celestial targets; I particularly enjoy wide-field deep-sky and nightscape work as well as lunar imaging.

I maintain a portfolio of my astrophotography at www.willgaterastrophotography.com, which is also where you’ll find a small gallery of the sketches I make at the telescope eyepiece.
