Abstract
A large part of the active optics system and control environment for the Galileo telescope has been developed and tested. Presently the primary mirror support cell has been characterized for the mechanical and optical aspects. The primary mirror has also been characterized and tested with the active support system in work. Part of the mechanics for the secondary and tertiary active mirror supports has been constructed and we plan to start the characterization work in the second half of this year. An overview of the main results obtained during factory acceptance tests and a discussion about the general informatics implementation is here provided.
