Abstract:

A new radio telescope system is described. This system consists of two annular mirror telescopes with very high effective resolving power. The main mirror is a narrow spherical ring of large diameter. The normal to the ring forms a small angle with the horizon. The ring consists of individual elements. The second mirror is moved on the focal line of the main mirror, and has a diameter equal to half that of the main mirror.
