Abstract

The first set of full resolution images have been made using the Mauritius Radio Telescope (MRT) for the Right Ascension range 18:00 to 19:00 hours and the declination range -70° to -10°.This is a part of the southern sky survey at 151.5 MHz being carried out using the MRT. To minimise the effect of bandwidth decorrelation, the images are made from the visibilities recorded with four different delay settings. This paper discusses three key issues of data analysis for the survey: Selection of good data for the survey, detection and removal of interference in the images and, preliminary analysis of these images.
