Lbc At The Lbt Laboratory

LBC blue was moved to the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in mid-2004. A small clean room has been prepared for the final assembly and tests (see Fig. 1). The camera window (Lens #6 of the corrector) was successfully installed, and we have performed some minor mechanical upgrades of the cryostat to fix some vacuum leaks (Torseal seals have finally been removed). We prepared the transportation and handling tools to move and mount the camera on the telescope. To allow more suitable handling, all 'external' electrical devices (shutter electronics, temperature telemetry, window heater) have been installed in a new case (see the black box in Fig. 1).
