The central array of Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) radio telescope under the center of our Milky Way galaxy. ASKAP comprises 36 radio dishes, each with a diameter of 12 meters, making the telescope sensitive to faint radiation from the Milky Way and giving it the ability to detect very distant galaxies.

    Great composition Alex. Interesting to see radio telescopes pictured once in awhile. Amazing backdrop of the Milky Way.
