The Parkes Observatory occasionally holds Open Days, providing the best opportunity to get a very close look at our giant 64-m telescope. The photo above was taken during the Open Day in September 2007 by Shaun Amy. A tour group inspects the counterweight and elevation drive motors from the azimuth track. - Throughout the year our Parkes Visitor Centre staff are looking forward to see you.
