Replacing the Parkes focus cabin
The decision in the early 1990s to build a 20cm multi-beam receiver for the Parkes 64m telescope, Murriyang, came with other consequences. The original "aerial cabin" was replaced in December 1995 by a larger focus cabin to accommodate larger and heavier receiver packages. With the Dish parked, and the feed legs supported, the old cabin was carefully removed. (Image credit: CSIRO Radio Astronommy Image Archive)
