7 March 2003 The DEIMOS spectrograph for the Keck II Telescope: integration and testing
Author Affiliations +
The DEIMOS spectrograph is a multi-object spectrograph being built for Keck II. DEIMOS was delivered in February 2002, became operational in May, and is now about three-quarters of the way through its commissioning period. This paper describes the major problems encountered in completing the spectrograph, with particular emphasis on optical quality and image motion. The strategies developed to deal with these problems are described. Overall, commissioning is going well, and it appears that DEIMOS will meet all of its major performance goals.
