- ^ Charles F. Claver; et al., LSST Reference Design, LSST Corporation, 64–65, 2007-03-19 [2008-12-10] The map on p. 64 shows the Universal Transverse Mercator location of the centre of the telescope pier at approximately 6653188.9 N, 331859.5 E, in zone 19J. However, those UTM coordinates appear to be using the PSAD56 (La Canoa) datum, as other assumptions do not lead to a peak. This is apparently widely used in South American UTM grids. The coordinates above have been translated to WGS84.

- ^ The camera is actually at the tertiary focus, not the prime focus, but being located at a "trapped focus" in front of the primary mirror, the associated technical problems are similar to those of a conventional prime-focus survey camera.
