Paper Abstract

A long-wavelength IR camera which is currently being built for the 10-m Keck Telescope is described, with attentions given to its overall configuration and to the optics, the dewar, the detector, and the electronics. Special consideration is given to the instrument control system and the software architecture for the remote operation of the Keck long-wavelength-camera detector. The instrument parameters and a schematic diagram of the camera are included.
