Cover Picture

Figure 1: IRAM 30-m telescope beam pattern calculated from scans across the limb of the Moon after the July 1997 surface re-adjustment. The heavy lines show gaussian approximations to the main beam and error beams. For each pattern, the profile is normalized to half-width of the full beam (from Greve, Kramer and Wild 1998, A&A Suppl. 133, 271; see also this Newsletter below).
