Parkes Catalog

(PKS)
(catalog of from 1960s-1990 of radio sources in southern hemisphere)

The Parkes Catalog (PKS) is an astronomical catalog from a radio survey of the southern hemisphere by the Parkes Observatory. It was first published in 1969 based on a 408 MHz survey, and later enhanced with observation data at 2650 MHz, 1410 MHz and other frequencies.

Many radio galaxies were discovered and still are known by their "PKS" designation.
