Some Photos of the CANGAROO 3.8m Cherenkov telescope.

The observatory is at a dark site 12km from Woomera, a desert town...

Now you can see the 3.8m dish in an alt-azimuth mount...

An electronics hut is on the right of the telescope. The 3.8m telescope is covered with a shed (left) to protect sulight, wind etc. during daytime and moonlit period.

The 3.8m telescope on a alt-azimuth mount is an ex-lunar-ranging telescope used in Dodaira observatory of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan.

Now the sky is getting darker and we will soon start to prepare observation...
