Spacewatch 0.9m Mosaic Camera Survey

The Spacewatch 0.9m Mosaic Camera Survey package contains data and documentation covering the survey between 2003 and 2016. The goal of the survey was to discover near-Earth asteroids by observing regions of the sky near the ecliptic and often near opposition. The survey was conducted using the Spacewatch mosaic camera, commissioned in 2002, and the Steward Observatory 0.9m telescope on Kitt Peak in the Tohono O'odham Nation.
