We present observations taken with the Precision Array for Probing the Epoch of Reionization (PAPER) of Centaurus A and the Galactic Centre in the frequency range 114 to 188 MHz. The resulting images, with a 250 resolution, offer insights into the low frequency structure of the two fields. A spectral index map of Cen A is produced across the full band. The observations of Centaurus A and their subsequent analysis have been published in detail in Stefan et al. (2013).
