The Deep Extragalactic VIsible Legacy Survey is a spectroscopic campaign at the AAT aimed at bridging the near and distant Universe by producing the highest completeness survey of galaxies and groups at intermediate redshifts (0.3<z<1.0).

2017B Observations Summary

In 2017B we were awarded 19 nights in two blocks of 18th-26th of December 2017 and 9th-22nd of January 2018. Within the first of these blocks from the 18th - 25th of December we observed half night (second half), sharing with OzDES.

Including half nights, during the run we were scheduled to observe for 23 nights, with a total of 19 nights observing time. We lost the equivalent ∼ 4 observing nights to bad weather and 2 nights due to the site being evacuated for a fire risk (21st-22nd of January). We observed a total of 80 good configurations (40 D03 and 40 D10), targeting 8,856 unique sources and obtaining 4,353 redshifts.

In addition, we have also targeted a number of OzDES transients and AGN in our observations via our MOU fibre share. During these observations we confirmed a number of new SNe which will lead to an A-TEL publication.
