These pages contain information on the OzDES survey and the two data releases.  The first data release (DR1) contains redshifts of 14,693 sources.  The second data release (DR2) doubles the number of redshifts as well as providing spectra.  For objects observed multiple times we are releasing both the stacked spectra and all the individual observations that went into the stacks.
