Greetings Axel, Thanks for the visit and the comment. You can get a real feel for the complexity of the dish, but you don't get a feel for the scale of these things. They are huge. The three concrete piers the base of the dish sits on must be ten feet tall. And they move them around very easily on rails with a special lift.

Cheers,

Rich
