    So it seemed like a good idea to pay a couple of visits here through the night.
    A large site with a various array of large aperture synthesis radio telescopes.
    Built over a number of years since 1958.


    1.The 4C Array. 450 metres long and constructed of 60 odd km of refector cable.

    4.ISO 12800 f2.4

    5.The One Mile and Half Mile Telescopes. Set on an 800 metre track which is raised by 5cm at one end to account for the curvature of the earth.

    Just to judge how dark it was there, what was your average sort of exposure times?

    Sure
    Merlin is 55 seconds ISO 800 f3.5
    The ISO 12800 f2.4 is 30 sec
    I think most were 30 seconds ISO 1000 to ISO 1600
