Operating proceedures for "The Dish"



For those who are wondering what it is like to operate one of the World's
largest steerable antennas (64 metres diameter) you can have a look at the
online operating instructions at http://www.parkes.atnf.csiro.au/  under
"Observer Information". This is the Parkes Radio Telescope (about a five
hour drive west of Sydney, NSW, Australia) which is in the movie "The Dish".
It has just turned 40 years old. There is a public open day this weekend
which includes a free screening of the movie in the paddock beside the
telescope.
