This will be a “behind-the-scenes” tour, so you’ll get to visit labs, engineering facilities, and the telescope control room – locations that are normally off-limits to the public!
We’ll meet at 10:30 am on the main yurt deck to arrange carpools to NRAO.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Cameras are welcome at NRAO, however their use is restricted. In order to prevent radio-frequency interference to observations in progress, the observatory prohibits the use of digital cameras (and electronics-laden film cameras) in some locations close to the telescopes. Bring a simple film camera if you’d like to take pictures up close to the instruments.
