DEIMOS was built at UCO/Lick Observatory in Santa Cruz, CA. It was installed on the Keck II telescope in spring of 2002 and saw first light on June 3. Software for the instrument was written by the UCO/Lick Scientific Programming Group and by Dr. A. C. Phillips. Members of the SPG during the DEIMOS effort were: R. Kibrick, D. Clarke, S. Allen, W. Deich, G. D. Tucker, and M. McVeigh.
