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.
