Multi-Epoch Nearby Cluster Survey

(Type Ia supernova survey in clusters at z = 0.1)

The Multi-Epoch Nearby Cluster Survey (MENeaCS) was an astronomical survey to identify and observe Type Ia supernovae at redshift z between 0.5 and 1.5. Observations were carried out in 2008 and 2009 using the MegaCam imager of the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT), with spectroscopic followup mostly with the MMT.
