So I've decided to branch out from visual astronomy and do a bit of radio astronomy, too. A group of friends and I needed a project for senior thesis in Electrical Engineering at YSU, so we decided that a radio telescope would make a great project, and dubbed it Project Odin (after the Norse god of the sky). Two out of four of the members are also astronomers, so this should make for a very interesting build. As if a radio telescope weren't enough, we will also be adding interferometry capability, so we can observe distant extragalactic sources such as Cassiopeia A and Virgo A. I'll keep you updated with pics and info as it progresses! Below is our antenna design, consisting of two half-wave dipoles, similar to a Radio Jove.
