Moving the 26 meter radio-telescope on Mt Pleasant near Hobart Tasmania, not a great recording unfortunately, it was bleak and windy on the day, and the wind-speed overwhelms the furry-blimp on occasions. I was staying near-by and raced up the hill one afternoon on a whim to record it moving but was kept a fair distance back by the security fence. At 0:00-0:50 is the telescope spooling up and moving. 0:50-1:51 the telescope is stationary and idling (flywheels), 1:52-2:20 the flywheels spool down, 2:20 the locks engage and the system is off...exciting to watch. I will have to go back and do it better another time. Recording chain: Rode NT4 (stereo mic in blimp) - Sound Devices MixPre (mic preamp) - Edirol R09 (digital recorder).
