ESO/Uppsala Survey of the ESO (B) Atlas

(1970s southern all-sky survey)

The ESO/Uppsala Survey of the ESO (B) Atlas is an astronomical catalog produced by surveying the plates that constitute the ESO (B) Atlas. Those, in turn, are the output of the ESO Quick Blue Survey, a survey of the southern hemisphere sky, carried out by the European Southern Observatory (ESO) at La Silla Observatory (LSO) in the early 1970s when the 1-meter ESO Schmidt Telescope went into operation. The survey is of all types of objects, and the designator includes a code, e.g., 'G' for galaxy, 'C' for comet.
