AbstractThe Edinburgh-Cape Blue Object Survey is a major survey to discover blue stellar objects brighter than B ∼ 18 in the southern sky. It is planned to cover an area of sky of 10 000 deg 2 with |b| > 30° and δ < 0°. The blue stellar objects are selected by automatic techniques from U and B pairs of UK Schmidt Telescope plates scanned with the COSMOS measuring machine. Follow-up photometry and spectroscopy are being obtained with the SAAO telescopes to classify objects brighter than B = 16.5. This paper describes the survey, the techniques used to extract the blue stellar objects, the photometric methods and accuracy, the spectroscopic classification, and the limits and completeness of the survey. © 1997 RAS.
