Caption: This "first light" image is a critical milestone on the way to outfitting all 27 of the 25-meter dishes of the JVLA with the new low frequency capability. This map of the radio sky at 337 MHz taken May 1, 2012, by the five Very Large Array (JVLA) 25m telescopes presently outfitted with the new NRL/NRAO developed <1 GHz receivers. Although showing only 5 relatively bright radio sources, the sky map represents a significant milestone in the development of new capability for the JVLA radio telescope.
