Abstract
We have just finished the first tests at the telescope of an infrared camera designed and developed at the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias (IAC). This camera, based on a 256 X 256 focal plane array, has been built to operate at the 1.5 m Carlos Sanchez IR telescope (CST) in the Observatorio del Teide (Canary Islands, Spain). In this paper we describe the final configuration and performance of the camera. Some images taken during two telescope commissioning periods are shown.
