360 degrees photo's

A photographer of the ANP took amazing 360 degree photo's of the Dwingeloo telescope. You can watch them here: from inside the dish and from opposite the telescope.

 

Many people came to see the lifting of the dish. 

And we have lift off!

Even though the dish turned out to be too heavy for the crane to be taken off during the day, in the evening the moment came when it finally flew through the air onto a special construction that will keep it on the ground for the next year.
