David  Gill was one of the most remarkable astronomers in the history  of Southern African Astronomy.  When Gill took over,  the Observatory was outdated.  He set out to modernise the facility and when he retired, the Cape Observatory was one of the finest and best equipped observatories in the world.  Gill pioneered astro photography and did an incredible amount of work towards establishing photographic catalogues of the Southern Sky. He was also a remarkable person outside of the field of astronomy. On 18 May 1869, at age 26 in a time when photography was still in its  experimental stage, Gill took a picture of the Moon. It can safely be said that it was this achievement – the photograph  was an excellent one, even by later standards – which drew attention  to the young amateur and started him off on the career which was  to bring him international fame, and provide astronomers all over the world with a priceless new research tool.” more reading here: http:/ HYPERLINK "http://assa.saao.ac.za/sections/history/astronomers/gill_d/" HYPERLINK "http://assa.saao.ac.za/sections/history/astronomers/gill_d/" HYPERLINK "http://assa.saao.ac.za/secti HYPERLINK "http://assa.saao.ac.za/sections/history/astronomers/gill_d/"ons/history/astronomers/gill_d/"/assa.saao.ac.za/sections/history/astronomers/gill_d/ .
