MSH Catalog

(1950s catalog of radio sources from a Mills Cross survey)

The MSH Catalog was a catalog of about 2000 radio sources published circa 1960 from 1950s observations.

Observations were on the 85.5MHz Mills Cross Radio Telescope, a large cross-shaped array of non-steerable dipole antennas (beamed by controlling the phase) at Badgerys Creek, Australia, a successor to the Badgerys Creek Interferometer 101MHz Survey and a model for cross-style radio telescopes such as the Mills Cross Array in Maryland.
