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...
