Phase-coherent holography at the 30m telescope

In June, first tests with a new dedicated receiver for phase-coherent holography using the 39 GHz beacon signal from the ITALSAT satellite showed very promising results. A first high resolution map (128 x 128 pixels) of the telescope surface could be obtained. See the report by B. Lazareff on page gif.
