Paper Abstract

The Large Binocular Camera (LBC) is a double prime focus station to be mounted on the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT). The two channels, called Blue and Red, are optimized for the UB and VRIZ bands respectively and are characterized by two optical correctors with very fast focal ratio (F/1.45) and challenging optical and mechanical specifications. We present here a review of the optical and mechanical design of both the optical correctors and report on the current status of the manufacturing and integration.
