The image is of the Sun at low angular resolution (unresolved), is at a frequency of 142 MHz and uses the full 30.72 MHz bandwidth for a single polarisation and a 10 second integration time. This is a huge milestone for the MWA project and shows that the integration of all the final hardware and software at the site is working, giving us a high level of confidence for on-time completion of the full instrument late this year.
