Early Science with MeerKAT
2019 July 29
The MeerKAT telescope celebrated its inauguration on 13 July 2018. While it is still being commissioned, and more correlator capabilities are expected to be rolled out, it has already demonstrated its potential to produce high dynamic range images with high fidelity, as shown with its inaugural image of the Galactic Centre. A technical overview of MeerKAT, its measured performance, current status and future capabilities is provided and first light images are shown.
