Dwingeloo 25-m radio telescope

The Dwingeloo 25-m radio telescope has made a lot of important contributions to radio astronomy. One of these is a northern sky survey of the so-called HI line of neutral hydrogen in our Galaxy.

The Dwingeloo 25-m telescope. Nice job, by the way, of the photo lab in the processing of that film role - they were really up to scratch...

Dwingeloo is located in the province of Drenthe in the northern Netherlands. The telescope is operated by the Netherlands Foundation for Research in Astronomy (ASTRON).

This photo was taken on the day of the Venus transit, 8 June 2004.
