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 of seven 4-square-degree fields. It was carried out between 2001 and 2006 on the Mayall 4m Telescope at Kitt Peak and the Víctor M. Blanco Telescope at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory.

In addition to its Cosmology aim, it discovered Planetoids, Comets, and supernovae.
