Meet the Staff of Sky & Telescope

Sky & Telescope magazine, founded in 1941 by Charles A. Federer Jr. and Helen Spence Federer, has the most experienced staff of any astronomy magazine in the world. Its editors are virtually all amateur or professional astronomers, and every one has built a telescope, written a book, done original research, developed a new product, or otherwise distinguished him or herself. Several of S&T's editors over the years have been honored by the world's astronomers by having asteroids named after them, and our designers and artists have had their extraordinary talents recognized by their peers in the magazine-publishing industry.

If you select a highlighted name from the following list, you'll call up a brief biography of that staff member.
