PAF on Parkes
by Simon Johnston (CASS)
On Wednesday 10th February, the Phased-Array Feed was hoisted into the focus cabin of the Parkes radio telescope. All went well with the lift, and the engineers are now busy cabling up the system. The Phased Array Feed is based on the ASKAP design, with some modifications to cope with the RFI environment at Parkes, and forms part of CSIRO's collaboration with the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (MPIfR) in Bonn, Germany.
