Extract

A new maser receiver, operating between 20 and 24 GHz and constructed by the radiometer group at the CSIRO Division of Radiophysics, was first scheduled for astronomical observations in December 1981. In good observing conditions the system temperature was as low as 60 K. In conjunction with the versatility of the 1024-channel correlator and the large collecting area of the Parkes telescope (the central 37 m illuminated at 22 GHz yields a ratio of flux density to antenna temperature of 9∼ Jy K-1) the total system is a very powerful new tool. Here we report some observations of naturally occuring celestial H2O masers which we have studied with this system.
