Paper Abstract

We describe the performance of the MMT as an astronomical telescope and the performance of its instrumentation. We present statistics relating to the number of publications resulting from data collected with the MMT, telescope and instrument down time, and site related statistics. We also briefly discuss plans for new and continuing development projects.
