A slideshow video of the camera being taken apart piece by piece.
The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope is under construction on Cerro Pachón, an 8,800-foot (2,682-meter) mountain peak in north-central Chilé (30°14′40.7″S 70°44′57.9″W). This video shows how the site looked in March of 2012.
The movie shows photons from a faint star that refract through turbulence in the atmosphere, bounce of the LSST mirrors, pass through the camera lenses, and convert into photoelectrons in the silicon pixels of the LSST camera.
