We present results of the Deep Impact event as observed from the San Pedro Martir observatory. The observations at SPM used multiple telescopes, including high-speed photometry at the 1.5 m telescope in optical wavelengths and spectroscopy between 400 and 600 nm on the 2 m telescope. The photometry was done in the BVRI filters, with an emphasis on R during the night of impact. Time resolution during impact and the immediate hour afterwards was ~ 15 seconds. We recorded a significantly brightened lightcurve following impact.
