Paper Abstract

While this paper is written, the Blue channel of the double prime focus camera for the Large Binocular Telescope is being commissioned at the telescope. We report here on the optical alignment of the prime focus corrector, a rather challenging activity, due to the tight alignment tolerances and to the size of the lenses. Furthermore we describe the current plans about the alignment of the prime focus corrector with the primary mirror of the telescope, which is foreseen in the next few months.
