Abstract
In this article activities on the Optomechanics of the Prime Focus Red Channel alignment are described from the moment in which the instrument left Italy to be shipped to LBT site to the moment in which it has been successfully placed on the second LBT arm. An overview is given, starting from the realization of a "clean laboratory" at LBT, going through the alignment check and finally with the mounting operations of the instrument at the telescope and its alignment with the "second eye" primary mirror, with tolerances good enough to perform the fine alignment on the sky with the telescope Active Optics.
