Installing the Tatel’s receiver
Here is a rare look at receiver installation on the 85-foot Howard E. Tatel radio telescope at Green Bank. At the time of this photo, the Tatel was just coming online in 1959 as the NRAO’s first radio telescope. The telescope could bend 90 degrees along the polar axis and weighed nearly 210 tons.
