The Cloudy Nights Star Contributors for January 2005 is:
Fiske is a very knowledgable observer, well read, has authored a recent article for S&T on historical books and charts and has provided some very good book reviews here.
Fiske is primarily a binocular observer and a small binocular observer at that. He champions hand held observing, but recognizes it takes all kinds of instruments to see all kinds of objects. What Fiske provides in a review is experience. Nothing is simply stated because he thinks that's what it is. He strives to find the answer, by repeated comparisons, by numerous observations, by gathering experience.
We here on Cloudy Nights are fortunate that he shares his experiences here.
