Is it correct to call it a radio telescope? I presume it qualifies as it does not directly form an optical image but perhaps someone more knowledgable could comment? Billlion 19:17, 25 Dec 2004 (UTC)

I wouldn't call it a radio-telescope, but some would. The submillimetre technology is more kin to the radio than the optical and it uses an antenna that looks how people think a radio telescope should look. I've edited the preamble to be a little more specific. --Jason Kirk 21:40, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Largest sub-mm telescope? Surely the IRAM 30m telescope (at Plateau de Bure) is larger? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.40.1.163 (talk) 04:58, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

But the IRAM doesn't operate at wavelengths below 1 mm. So it's a mm-wave telescope, not sub-mm AdamW (talk) 15:40, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Regime vs. range[edit]

in describing em radiation generally the words 'range' or 'band' are commonly used in describing wavelength. i've never seen 'regime' used, but i don't really know radio telescopy. is that a common term in the field?Toyokuni3 (talk) 14:26, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Jargon Template Added[edit]

I put the jargon template on the top of the page to request clarification of some things. Most notably, the stuff about "continuum detectors" is totally unclear. Presumably we have already detected the fact that we are inside a space-time continuum, so further explication is needed. Z.S. 22:39, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
