Torun Telescope


The Toruń Centre for Astronomy is an optical and radio observatory located about 15 km north of Toruń, Poland. Since 1981 the observatory has been a part of world wide network of radio telescopes participating in VLBI (Very Long Baseline Interferometry). The 32 m telescope is a 620-ton construction designed by Zygmunt Bujakowski based on initial geometric parameters created by Dr Jerzy Usowicz. It is used in VLBI experiments, as well as spectroscopic, flux, polarisation measurements and pulsar observations. Currently receivers for frequencies 1.4-1.8 GHz, 5 GHz, 6.5 GHz, 10.8 GHz and 30 GHz are in use.
