The wiki (or at least the bit I looked at some time ago) seems to state
that the difference between
disused and abandoned is how much effort would be required to bring it back

Since these only need microphones and amplifiers to be restored to full
function, they're
disused, not abandoned (by that wiki definition).

At least one of these telescopes is a listed building:
