We present the confusion-limited 1.28 GHz MeerKAT DEEP2 image covering one primary-beam area with θ = 7 6 FWHM resolution and rms noise. Its J2000 center position α = 04h 13m 26 4, δ = −80° 00' 00'' was selected to minimize artifacts caused by bright sources. We introduce the new 64-element MeerKAT array and describe commissioning observations to measure the primary-beam attenuation pattern, estimate telescope pointing errors, and pinpoint (u, v) coordinate errors caused by offsets in fre...Expand abstract
