If you want a small radio telescope I found this: http://www.haystack.mit.edu/edu/unde...srt/index.html, it gives details on how to build a radio telescope along with some projects for it and instruction Manuel and parts list is on the site. Would be interesting to build.
I can second this suggestion, if you happen to have a spare $6,000 burning a hole in your pocket. I've had the pleasure of playing with a couple of the 'old' SRT antennae; noise readings ~70 K, potential for 'aperture fever' satiety resolution as a VLBI, and - supposedly - relatively flexible electronics.
