  • The Deep Ecliptic Survey is a project whose goal is to survey a largearea of the near-ecliptic region to a faint limiting magnitude (R ∼24) in search of objects in the outer solar system. We are collectinga large homogeneous data sample from the Kitt Peak Mayall 4-m and CerroTololo Blanco 4-m telescopes with the Mosaic prime-focus CCD cameras.Our goal is to collect a sample of 500 objects with good orbits to furtherour understanding of the dynamical structure of the outer solar system.This… CONTINUE READING
