|My first visit of the Parkes Dish|
|by Lucero Uscanga (Universidad de Guanajuato)|
|Here a few pictures of my first time in
Parkes, August 2011. I was collaborating with Philippe Bendjoya, Jose F. Gomez
and Olga Suarez on a survey for WAter Masers around B[e] stars (WAMBe). |
My first time in Parkes was a wonderful experience. I watched "the Dish" movie for the first time before my observations and I also had the opportunity to take the "antenna ride", climb to the top and see the instruments. Then I understood why you called Parkes antenna: "The most beautiful radio telescope".
Currently I am working as 'Associate Professor' at the Department of Astronomy at the University of Guanajuato in the centre of Mexico.
