Ryle Telescope_01 

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 but I think tthe resolution is good. Next step is to get some kind of remote control for the tele-wide actuator.
