Paper Abstract

While the ultimate proof of telescope performance is in the quality and amount of science it is able to produce, commissioning results give a good and in-depth indication of how well a telescope facility actually performs, both in terms of sub-system commissioning and on-sky commissioning. Results from LBT commissioning activities are presented, along with lessons learned and a discussion of the challenges for future commissioning required to prepare the LBT for true Binocular Operation and ultimately interferometric operations.
