Nançay Radio Telescope

(NRT)
(France large single-dish radio telescope)

Nançay Radio Telescope (NRT) is a radio telescope in central France that began operation in 1965. It consists of a flat, tiltable reflecting surface, reflecting the signal to a stationary spherical reflecting surface that focuses it on the receiving instruments, which can be moved to adjust the aim. The flat mirror is 40×20 meters, giving it a collection area and resolving ability that varies with the tilt, but can be on the order of that of a 30-meter dish. Common frequencies of observations are 1400 MHz, 1660 MHz, and 3330 MHz.
