Some great pictures from the LBA installation

I just updated the main LOFAR website adding some new header images. They were taken from this wonderful series of images of the LBA installation kindly sent to us by Chris Ison of the Press Association (reproduced with permission). Chris visited the LBA installation on the second day of the main week (ie. the Tuesday).

In the first four images Derek McKay-Bukowski (installation manager) checks the alignment of an LBA. Derek personally quality checked (and photographed) the installation of all 96 LBA... among his many other tasks during the installation.

A wide angle shot of the LBA field during the installation week. You can see the 25m dish in the background.
