FURTHER ACCURATE DECLINATIONS OF RADIO SOURCES,
OWENS VALLEY RADIO OBSERVATORY PASADENA CA
Pagination or Media Count:
The two 90-foot steerable paraboloids of the Owens Valley Radio Observatory were used as a twoelement interferometer with a north-south baseline to measure accurately the declinations of 90 radio sources with right ascensions between 9 hours 50 minutes and 24 hours. The antenna separation was 200 feet and the observing frequency was 1390 Mcs. The average standard error of the measured declinations is 12 seconds of arc. Author
