LaSilla-QUEST Variability Survey

The LaSilla-QUEST Variability Survey studies variable astronomical objects, particularly Kuiper Belt Objects (KBOs), periodic variable stars and supernovae.  The survey utilizes the 40” ESO Schmidt Telescope at the LaSilla Observatory in Chile with the large-area QUEST camera that was built jointly by Yale University and Indiana University.  The data from the survey is accessible to all Yale researchers.
