In the latest ASKAP Update No 8, Maxim Voronkov,
Adan Hotan, John Reynolds, and Dave McConnell report the first radio images
from ASKAP using its second generation (Mk II) Phased Array Feeds (PAFs). These
images result from early commissioning trials of four antennas, their PAFs and
the associated digital spectrometers, beamformers and correlator. The first
single-beam image was shown recently on ADAP and targeted the source B0407-658.
The image shown here has 16 formed (synthetic) beams, more than any other radio
image to date. It was taken at 939.5 MHz (48 MHz bandwidth) with three ASKAP
antennas. All data were processed in ASKAPsoft.
