Paper Abstract

The commissioning phase of the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo is started during the first half of 97. Large parts of the drive, the optical and the control system have been mounted at the telescope in site (LaPalma, Canary Islands). The telescope is expected to be ready for the technical first- light during February - March 98 while the instrumentation first-light is expected for mid 98. On this review of the commissioning operations we will describe the problems encountered and the results achieved integrating the main telescope subsystems.
