Looking up at Parkes
We are so used to see pictures of the Parkes telescope from above, one can be forgiven for thinking this is an artist's impression of the sky rendered on the surface of the Dish. It was, however, taken by Tim Ruckley during a maintenance period at Parkes in 2002. The view is looking up through an access hatch in the surface of the Parkes Radio Telescope. The cover on the base of the focus cabin has been removed for maintenance.
