Abstract: This data set contains broadband R images and derived photometry of comet 9P/Tempel 1, the target of the Deep Impact mission. Data were acquired by M. Buie at the Perkins 72-inch telescope of the Lowell Observatory during 11 nights of observing from 28 September 2000 through 14 January 2001, about 8.5 to 12.5 months after the comet passed through perihelion on 2 January 2000.
