6 August 2014 LBTO's long march to full operation - step 1
Author Affiliations +
For the LBT Observatory, the next couple of years promise to be both exciting and challenging. Exciting as the long awaited suite of first generation instruments and GLAO become available for binocular operations, while regular interferometric observations will make LBT the first operational ELT. Challenging because LBTO will have to handle maintenance and upgrades of instruments or key components like its adaptive secondaries about which it has much to learn. Step1 will outline a plan optimizing LBTOs scientific production while mitigating the consequences of the inevitable setbacks the challenges will bring.
