FIRST (Far Infrared and Sub-millimeter Telescope) is one of the satellites of the next ESA scientific mission. FIRST/Planck, which will be launched in 2007 to the 2nd Lagrangian libration point L2. It will be a multi-user observatory, watching the universe in the infrared and sub- millimeter wavelength range from 60 to 670 micrometers . The paper will describe the latest design status of the cryostat, and its interfaces to the instruments and the telescope.
