Paper Abstract

DEIMOS is a large multi-object spectrography with an imaging mode that is being built for the W. M. Keck 2 Telescope. The camera contains nine lens elements in five groups. The overall length of the camera and detector assembly is 0.67 meters, and the largest element is 0.33 meters in diameter. Typical centration and spacing tolerances are at the level of 25 microns. We describe the error budget, the design of the lens-supporting structure, and the assembly procedures.
