Ryle Telescope_02 

The Ryle Telescope is an 8-element interferometer operating at 15 GHz (2cm wavelength). The elements are equatorially mounted 13 m Cassegrain antennas, on an (almost) E-W baseline. Four aerials are mounted on a 1.2 km rail track, and the others are fixed at 1.2 km intervals. www.mrao.cam.ac.uk/telescopes/ryle/index.html

This flight was all about getting to know the EP1 with the 14-42mm lens. The hit rate is not so good (presumably due to the light loss through its 'long' lens array) but I think the resoloution is good. Next step is to get some kind of remote control for the tele-wide actuator up and running without going over the weight buget (all up this rig weighs in at 900g.now)

The whole area to the left of the telescope is a no fly zone imposed by the Countryside Restoration Trust, a nature conservation charity; they don't like kites or kite fliers.
