The eight-dish Submillimeter Array on Mauna Kea in Hawaii was one of a global federation of radio telescopes used to produce the world’s first images of a black hole earlier this year.

From Wikipedia: “The radio frequencies accessible to this telescope range from 180–418 gigahertz (1.666–0.717 mm) which includes rotational transitions of dozens of molecular species as well as continuum emission from interstellar dust grains.”
