Giuseppe Donatiello (b. 1967) is an Italian amateur astronomer, astrophotographer and author. Known primarily as author of hundreds of articles in leading astronomical magazines on topics related to astronomical instrumentation, advanced image processing techniques, astronomical news and history of astronomy. He has participated in comet observation campaigns, including International Halley Watch and UCW, and still participates in Pro-Am collaborations in the field of galactic archeology, in particular in the study of dwarf galaxies, ultra-diffuse galaxies and stellar tidal streams.
This research led to the discovery of a very nearby spheroidal dwarf galaxy 9.87 million light-years away, designated - absolute first time with the name of a non-professional - Donatiello I. [en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donatiello_I].
