Abstract
The demonstrated pointing, tracking and offsetting characteristics of the NASA 3-meter infrared telescope are reviewed. Other special features of the telescope such as low thermal background and versatile chopping secondary are also discussed. Experience is presented as to why these design features are important when making infrared observations of astronomical objects.
