Paper Abstract

The NASA Infrared Telescope Facility is a 3 meter infrared optimized telescope available to the astronomical community based on a peer reviewed applications. Efforts underway for two years to reduce the telescope emission in the infrared have reduced the telescope emissivity by more than a factor of two. This paper will report on the present telescope emissivity, the method used to measure the telescope emissivity, and cleaning procedures.
