Field of View

You can usually see a fair amount to the left and right while still looking straight ahead. But when you look through binoculars or a telescope, your view is restricted to a much narrower field of view.

A radiotelescope array's field of view is determined by the diameter of its individual receiving dishes. Smaller sized dishes result in a larger field of view.
