PAndAS

(Pan-Andromeda Archaeological Survey)
(survey of M31 and M33)

PAndAS was an Astronomical Survey of Andromeda (M31) and the Triangulum Galaxy (M33) using the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT), carried out in the 2008-2012 time frame. The goal was more detail about the structure of the two galaxies and their dwarf Satellite Galaxy companions for clues to their formation (hence the term "archaeological"). They were chosen as the closest sizable galaxies for which we have a full/external view.
