Re: Source for aluminum dish

Anderson does sell some smaller offset dishes, down to .75 meters in 
size. Below about 1 meter, the support structure for the feed of a prime 
focus dish starts to significantly cut into the efficiency of the dish. 
This is why many small dishes use an offset feed on them, and most of 
the BBQ dishes have the feed coming out from the center of the dish to 
minimize the effect of the feed and support structure.
