ASKAP, the Australian SKA Pathfinder, consists of 36 telescopes, which together form a powerful 6-km diameter radio interferometer. The photo above shows the installation of the first Mk2 Phased Array Feed on one 12-m ASKAP antenna, providing 30 square degrees field of view and good sensitivity across the 0.7 to 1.8 GHz band. ASKAP complements the Australia Telescope Compact Array (6 x 22-m; 1 - 105 GHz) and the 64-m Parkes telescope.
