Onsala 25 m telescope

The 25.6 m diameter, polar mount decimeter-wave telescope in Onsala is equipped with receivers for frequencies up to 7 GHz. It is used mainly for astronomical VLBI observations of, e.g., star forming regions, radio stars, and active galactic nuclei, but occasionally as a single dish for, e.g., observations of interstellar molecules. The telescope was built in 1963.
