Observations of 2018 targets in a magnitude-limited sample of 2911 objects to RAB=24.4 yield secure redshifts for a sample of 1440 galaxies and active galactic nuclei (AGNs) plus 96 stars. In addition to redshifts and associated quality assessments, our catalog also includes photometric and astrometric measurements for all targets detected in our R-band imaging survey of the GOODS-North region. Description: To ensure timely access to a catalog of astrometric positions and approximate magnitudes for completing the spectroscopy, we generated our own independent catalog of sources in the GOODS-N field. We acquired a series of 300s R-band exposures using DEIMOS in imaging mode on Keck II during the night of 2002 December 30 (UT) and complemented these with additional images obtained on 2003 February 02 (UT) to complete coverage of the full ACS imaging region. The exposures were offset and dithered to compensate for the gaps in the DEIMOS CCD mosaic. File Summary:
