Install File - Where Is It Saved?

Anyone know where the install file is saved after it downloads from the app store? I want to install it on other systems without having to download over and over again. Plus I'm curious.

once its downloaded it'll show up in applications folder ('Install OSX Mountain Lion Preview 1')

make a spare copy of the install file somewhere else before continuing install on the machine you downloaded it on

Thanks. Unfortunately, it seems once you download and install, it's deleted and you can't download it again as you can only redeem it once. Awesome!

I take that back. It's under the "Purchased" tab in App Store. I am "installing" it again to download. It's now downloading. I will see what happens after that.

aye is why I reckoned on making a spare copy of the file before continuing the install - as that 'delete file on install completion' is way Lion did it too (I've got ML sat waiting to install over the weekend so couldn't confirm for sure)
