Mopra Telescope




A 22-meter radio antenna that forms part of the Australia Telescope National Facility (ATNF), operated by the CSIRO. It is intended for use in conjunction with other ATNF antennas – the six 22-meter dishes at Narrabri, and the 64-meter dish at Parkes Observatory – to form the Long Baseline Array. Like the Parkes antenna, it is also used for single-dish operation; millimeter-wavelength receivers are to be installed in the future.
