|Looking up at Parkes|
We are so used to see pictures of the Parkes telescope from above, one can be
forgiven for thinking this is an artist's impression of the sky
rendered on the surface of the Dish. It was, however, taken by Tim
Ruckley during a maintenance period at Parkes in 2002.
The view is looking up through an access hatch in the surface of the Parkes Radio Telescope.
The cover on the base of the focus cabin has been removed for maintenance.
