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 it detects the emission from neutral hydrogen (HI) gas in the cosmos. This radio emission can be used to study the structure of the Milky Way galaxy or the 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. Educators accessing the telescope via the RadioNet/ EU-HOU collaboration will find the relevant Observing Manual under RadioNet/ EU-HOU Materials. There are English and Polish versions of the Observing Manual available. Exercises to perform with the JBiO 7-m radio telescope can be found under Exercises.
