Today we conducted our first “automated” neutral HI scan of the galactic plane (no observer required at Site-B). The purpose of the experiment was to measure the radial velocity of neutral HI along the galactic plane as it drifted over the 10-meter telescope (at 90° altitude). The experiment was a success. The data collected and analyzed demonstrates a decrease of intensity as the HI along the galactic plane decreased.
