Abstract / Description:LINC-NIRVANA is an innovative, high-resolution, near-infrared imager for the Large Binocular Telescope. Its Multi-Conjugate Adaptive Optics system uses natural guide-stars and the layer-oriented, multiple-field of view approach for high sky coverage and eventual interferometric beam combination. We describe LINC-NIRVANA's particular flavour of MCAO and its associated challenges, and report on final lab integration and system level testing. LINC-NIRVANA is currently at the telescope undergoing final alignment and tests before First Light late this fall.
