My first visit of the Parkes Dish
by Lucero Uscanga (Universidad de Guanajuato)
Here a few pictures of my first time in Parkes, August 2011. I was collaborating with Philippe Bendjoya, Jose F. Gomez and Olga Suarez on a survey for WAter Masers around B[e] stars (WAMBe).

My first time in Parkes was a wonderful experience. I watched "the Dish" movie for the first time before my observations and I also had the opportunity to take the "antenna ride", climb to the top and see the instruments. Then I understood why you called Parkes antenna: "The most beautiful radio telescope".

Currently I am working as 'Associate Professor' at the Department of Astronomy at the University of Guanajuato in the centre of Mexico.
