The Stockholm Centimetre Radio Telescope (SCRT)
consists of two 2.3 metre dishes equipped
with 1420 MHz detectors sensitive to the
hydrogen 21 cm spectral line. The telescopes
are located on the roof of the main building of
Albanova University Centre
at Roslagstull in Stockholm.
The telescopes are only used for educational purposes
where the students, typically undergraduate
university students or advanced high school students,
systematically can build a map of the Milky Way and
its spiral arms.
It is possible to control the telescopes and do all
observations remotely over the internet. If you are
interested to run the telescopes, please feel free
to contact us.
The SCRT has been set up and is operated through the
combined efforts of the Astronomy Department and the
Physics Department of Stockholm University.
