CSIRO's Parkes radio telescope is a 64 metre diameter parabolic dish used for radio astronomy. It is located about 20 km north of the town of Parkes, New South Wales, and about 380 km west of Sydney. The telescope was built in 1961, but only its basic structure has remained unchanged. The surface, control system, focus cabin, receivers, computers and cabling have all been upgraded - some parts many times -  to keep the telescope current.
