About Rod Mollise

1 Posts 0 Comments
“Uncle” Rod Mollise, a Contributing Editor at Sky & Telescope magazine, is familiar to amateur astronomers as the author of numerous books and magazine articles on every aspect of astronomy, amateur and professional. He is most well known, however, for his books on Schmidt Cassegrain Telescopes, SCTs, and especially Choosing and Using a New CAT (Springer), now in its second edition, which has become the standard reference for these instruments. In addition to Sky & Telescope and his books, Rod’s writing can be found in his popular online blog, Uncle Rod’s Astro Blog. Somehow, he also finds time to teach astronomy to undergraduates at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, and to voyage the night sky with his beloved telescopes.
