    Currently doing a Binary Pulsar Search and have noticed that there is an additional object/icon on the screen saver. It is a white/grey disk shaped like a radio telescope. What does that signify? All the other objects are there as normal but would like to know what this designates, as nothing is mentioned about it for the screen saver.

      That should be Arecibo.

        I can't find a download site for the screensaver. Is it available?

          The executable is in your local E@H data directory.

          Cheers, Mike.
