First image with MkII PAFs on ASKAP
by Ant Schinckel (CASS)
This is the first MkII PAF single-port image on ASKAP, taken by Maxim Voronkov and Aidan Hotan. The target is PKS 1934-638, one of the strongest compact sources at 1.4 GHz (over 48 MHz bandwidth, centred at 939.5 MHz). This is an outstanding result thanks to a great team who have worked tirelessly to get this far: designing, building, installing, testing and debugging these systems. The success of the MkII systems is built on the shoulders of the MkI systems - huge engineering steps, pivotal in the development process of our chequerboard PAFs and key components on the path to the successes ASKAP will achieve in the future.
