To select Leo I red giant branch star candidates we exploit M, T2, and DDO51 filter photometry; this yields 100% pure Leo I stars among more than 100 M<21.5 Leo I giant candidates having previous or new Keck spectroscopy. Description: The images used in this study were obtained with the Mayall 4m Telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory (KPNO) during the nights of UT 1998 November 17 and 2002 May 2-5. File Summary:

Note (1): f = Alignment stars observed with 4" wide slits. All other stars were observed with 1" wide slits. Note (2): Corrected for the Telluric offsets as described in text. Note (3): We convert to Galactocentric standard of rest by assuming a local standard of rest velocity of 220km/s and a solar peculiar velocity of (u,v,w)=(-9,12,7)km/s Note (4): The wavelength ranges on which the telluric offset determination is based are 6866-6912Å (the Fraunhofer B band), 7167-7320Å, 7593-7690Å (the Fraunhofer A band), 8110-8320Å, and 8925-9120Å, but all telluric features weaker than 20% were not used. See text for more explanations. Note (5): See Majewski et al. (2004AJ....128..245M) and Kunkel et al. (1997A&AS..122..463K) for descriptions on how Q-values are assigned.
