Dennis di Cicco (born 1950) is an American amateur astronomer who lives in New England. He has discovered numerous asteroids from his backyard observatory in Sudbury, Massachusetts (IAU code 817). He was a member of the editorial staff of Sky and Telescope magazine from 1974 until his resignation as senior editor in June 2014.[1] His special interests include astronomical photography and the history of astronomical photography, telescope making, and astronomical observing. During 1978-79 he was the first person to successfully photograph the analemma, making 48 separate exposures on a single piece of film during a 12-month period. The project is described in the June 1979 issue of "Sky & Telescope." The asteroid 3841 Dicicco was named after him.[2]

He grew up in Hanover Mass.
