About this image

KPNO 2.1-meter telescope (with Coude feed tower on the left). Behind to the right, the WIYN 0.9-meter and 3.5-meter telescopes. Despite appearances, the radio telescope dish, part of the VLBA network, is not sticking out of the WIYN dome, but is actually some distance behind it. Further away on the southwest ridge, to the left, are the 12-meter radio dish and two telescopes of the MDM Observatory.
