Over the past few months, I’ve been working on PICTOR.
PICTOR is an open-source radio telescope that allows anyone to observe the radio sky using its convenient web platform for free. The goal of this effort is to introduce students, educators, astronomers and others to the majesty of the radio sky, promoting radio astronomy education, without the need of building a large and expensive radio telescope by the user.
PICTOR consists of a 1.5-meter parabolic antenna that allows anyone to make continuous and spectral (i.e. hydrogen line) drift-scan observations of the radio sky in the 1300~1700 MHz regime for free.
For more information, please take a look at the Website: https://www.pictortelescope.com/, the GitHub repository: https://github.com/0xCoto/PICTOR (stars are appreciated!) and/or the PDF guide that includes some introductory information on radio astronomy as well as instructions on how to use the telescope:www.pictortelescope.com/Observing_the_radio_sky_with_PICTOR.pdf
All feedback is welcome and highly encouraged!
