On the 5th of May a chequerboard Phased-Array Feed was hoisted up to the focus of MPIfR's 100-m Effelsberg telescope near Bonn in Germany. The Effelsberg Phased-Array Feed (PAF) is very similar to the 36 ASKAP PAFs, all build by the brilliant staff at CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science (CASS) in close collaboration with many industry partners. First Effelsberg observations with the new PAF are under way to carry out calibration tests and early science commissioning.
