Abstract

SCUBA-2 is a 10,000 pixel wide field sub-millimeter camera which started science observing on James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT) in the spring of 2010. We present the results of characterising individual 1280 bolometer science grade sub-arrays, as well as experience from operating the instrument.
