Paper Abstract

In March, 1988 the Science Steering Committee of the California Association for Research in Astronomy selected four instruments which were to be built by the time the Keck Telescope received first light. A long wavelength infrared camera was one of the instruments chosen and is described here. The camera was divided into two parts, (1) the detector, the optics and the dewar; (2) the electronics and the computers.
