    Talking The Observatory Telescopes! - January 2015


    Mockingbird Wanted Telescopes!

    So last year during one of the many trips I had done out and about ticking off things which seemed of interest I noticed an old report from a good mate of mine UrbanX I didn't want to hassle him, so I just decided to track it down an get on with it - His report is here - Which is far more better than my petty attempt
    https://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/main...d#.VL5xlNKsWSo

    So deciding on something different this place sparked my curiosity, an soon I was muddy and walking towards them yeah they are impressive an the ones shown are not in use, despite this being a live site I soon found myself being questioned by security, they was cool and didn't pressure me to leave straight away, but I felt it I snapped all I wanted, just wish I could of climbed on one :(
    I really should of planned seeing these better but oh well whats done is done and ticked off, this place also reminded me my sensor needed a good cleaning, but having not cleaned it for almost a year and the grubby places id happily swapped lenses over in, it is not that bad... all cleaned now though.

    There is history, but I shall only place a little below, sadly not many shots either.



    Home to a number of large aperture synthesis radio telescopes, including the One-Mile Telescope, 5-km Ryle Telescope, and the Arcminute Microkelvin Imager. Radio interferometry started in the mid-1940s.
    The observatory was founded under Martin Ryle of the Radio-Astronomy Group of the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge and was opened by Sir Edward Victor Appleton on 25 July 1957.


    Enjoy what I snapped up...

    You're definitely whacking the reports up lately! Awesome images as usual. In all my time doing this I've only had one encounter with secca, which went ok. First shot sets things up nicely.

    Not a thing wrong with your images. You're too much of a perfectionist!
