These photos are from a trip to the National Radio Astronomy Observatory Very Large Array site west of Socorro, New Mexico, a few years ago. Some general information from the NRAO website (http://www.nrao.edu/):
The Very Large Array, one of the world's premier astronomical radio observatories, consists of 27 radio antennas in a Y-shaped configuration on the Plains of San Agustin fifty miles west of Socorro, New Mexico. Each antenna is 25 meters (82 feet) in diameter. The antennas in the Very Large Array are used like the zoom lens in a camera. When they are in the A configuration, the telescopes extend over the 21 kilometer (13 mile) length of each arm. This simulates a single dish that is 36 kilometers (22 miles) in diameter. In this configuration, we have the most magnification and can see the greatest detail. The size of the array gradually decreases with the B and C configurations until, in the D configuration, the telescopes are all placed within .6 kilometer (.4 mile) of the center.
During my visit the antennas were in one of the smaller configurations which made photography a bit easier. Since then, the array has been upgraded and is now known as the Expanded Very Large Array (EVLA) although to the casual observer the appearance is the same. Almost all of the photos here are black and white although I used a PhotoShop Find Edges filter on one image that I didn't like otherwise and I have included a color photo of the transporter that is used to relocate the antennas.
In some of the photos you may have noticed that each antenna sits above two parallel sets of what appear to be railroad tracks. The "Y" configuration used for locating the antennas consists of two sets of parallel tracks like these with perpendicular rails to each antenna location. The antennas are moved using a special transporter which lifts the antennas and moves them. Rather than turning on curves like a traditional railroad, the transporte moves down the legs of the "Y" and then when it reaches a selected telescope location, it lifts itself up and the wheels are rotated to move down the perpendicular rails. This is one of the two transporters at the VLA site.
And this is a photo of the array using PhotoShop's Find Edges filter. I elected to use it with this photo because the whites were so blown out on the orignal image that all detail was lost on the distant telescopes.
