The lifting of the dish on June 5th attracted a lot of attention. ASTRON & JIVE staff, passers by, tourists and of course journalists all came to see this spectacular event. Lifting off the dish marked the beginning of the restoration of the Dwingeloo telescope.

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.
