The central array of Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) radio telescope stands against the zodiacal light, sunlight reflection from dust in the Solar System plane. 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.
