Deep Lens Survey
(investigating mass distribution of the universe)
The Deep Lens Survey (DLS)
was a survey of distant
galaxies, with the aim of finding gravitational lensing,
to assist in determining the universe's mass distribution.
It was a photometric-based
survey using four bands and covering seven 4-square-degree
survey fields. It was carried out between 2001 and 2006 on
the Mayall 4m Telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory (KPNO) and the Víctor M. Blanco Telescope
at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO).
Though its aim was cosmology, it also discovered
planetoids, comets, and supernovae.
