(Polish survey of 20,000 objects brighter than 14 magnitude)

The All Sky Automated Survey (ASAS) is a Polish photometric survey begun in 1997 to monitor transients. It began with a telescope at the Las Campanas Observatory (LCO), Chile, with later addition of a second telescope on Haleakala, Maui in 2006. It has viewed 50,000 variables over the southern 3/4 of the sky with 39,000 credited as discoveries.
