National Radio Astronomy Observatory Green Bank

Cable wrapper of the GBT NRAO Green Bank

As the GBT spins in azimuth (horizontally), the cables get wrapped up. The telescope can spin only so far (I think it is around 500 or so degrees) before the telescope has to be spun the other way to unwrap the cables.
