Abstract: The Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope (MOST), located near Canberra, Australia, is an east-west earth-rotation synthesis array which, unlike conventional synthesis arrays, generates multiple real-time fan-beams and forms images by the back-projection of the recorded intensities rather than by Fourier inversion of visibilities. The images produced in this fashion are often marred by the presence of radial artefacts emanating from strong sources due to residual calibration errors. An algorithm devised to self-calibrate these errors is discussed.
