The Keck ET is currently being used in a pilot survey of ~ 2000 V = 8-12 solar-type stars in 30 different fields and will be completed by June 2008 before MARVELS starts in July 2008. The early results from the Keck ET pilot program have demonstrated that the multi-object DFDI instrument is capable of conducting a large-scale planet survey at the SDSS telescope.
