If this image of the Parkes 64m radio telescope looks a little different, it's because it dates from 1979, when perforated aluminium panels covered only the inner 37m of the dish surface. The image is a screen grab from the video "A tour of the Parkes Radio Telescope" which features an interview with astronomer Jon Abeles (and some "spacey" musical effects...).
