IntroLiterally the day before my trusted Nikon D5100 crapped itself and died we went for a afternoon visit to a disused part of a Radio-Observatory. Although a night time visit is more appropriate, we decided to go on a cold, gloomy, windy January lovely.
The SiteKnown as the "One Mile Telescope"
The site itself is mostly active with small section being out of use for a period of time.
Built in 1964 and operating for 20 years these 3 telescopes are situated along roughly a Kilometer of track which allowed one of them to move into various positions, which is rather unusual. Along this rail are two control rooms, one preserved and alarmed, the other derelict with a lot remaining. Along side lays another decommissioned array which I failed to photograph.
The explore is rather relaxed and after a good few hours we eventually got ourselves caught.

Anyway, that'll be all.
