Jodrell Bank Internet Observatory (JBiO) - Observing Manual
The Jodrell Bank Internet Observatory (JBiO) is a web
interface to Jodrell Bank Observatory's 7-m radio telescope. The telescope can
be used by registered users to observe celestial objects in real-time over the
Internet. The telescope is fitted with a 21cm spectral line receiver with which

dynamics of other distant galaxies. There are several versions of the Observing
Manual available. Distance Learners or Undergraduates will find
the Observing Manual under Generic Materials most appropriate.
