This is a "souvenir picture" of the first NAC taken last year in a cleanroom at Malin Space Science Systems in San Diego. In this picture the large primary mirror of the NAC optics is well visible at the end of the NAC tube. The LROC Science Team member on the left gives a good sense of just how large the LROC NACs are. Remember, there will be two NACs side by side on the LRO spacecraft!
