Naslov: The largest telescopes in the world

Povzetek:

At the lecture I will present my visit of astronomical observatories in the Atacama desert in Chile (La Silla, Paranal, ALMA) and the Canary Islands (GTC on La Palma), which boast some of the largest optical or radio telescopes in the world. We will learn the characteristics and peculiarities of these powerful research institutions, as well as the way of life and work of astronomers, staying at the observatories. I will also present an interesting research radar station Sondrestrom in Greenland, dedicated to studying the polar upper atmosphere. The lecture will conclude with a brief presentation of amateur astrophotography.
