    Assembly of Telescopes

    Four of the eight telescopes arrived at the high bay of the Enrico Fermi Institute, University of Chicago in June 2003. They are currently being assembled and fitted with the drive system. Then they will be shipped to the OVRO site in California. The remaining four telescopes will be shipped directly in California and assembled on site.

    Here are some slideshows documenting the arrival and assembly of the telescopes:
