Wow! That's an interesting rig.

Sadly, I know not what it's for: But, judging by where it's pointing, could it be a Radio Telescope?

Thanks Gordon, I will get its exact location and find it on google maps, I was thinking it was something to do with radio telescopes.

Maybe a radio amateur's dish for moonbouncing (using the moon as passive reflector).
