Using a sequence of photographs of the southern celestial hemisphere taken by the UK Schmidt telescope
at Siding Springs Observatory in New South Wales, Australia, the team picked out images of distant galaxies and discarded those of individual stars with the help of a computerized scanning machine.
In the 1970s, David Malin also found cirrus on images taken with the 1.2-meter UK Schmidt Telescope
at Siding Spring Observatory, Australia, and Allan Sandage wrote about it and the scattering of optical light in 1975-76.
A nother comet-hunting team relies on high-quality photographic plates at the UK Schmidt telescope
at Siding Springs Observatory, New South Wales, Australia.
One such project is RAVE, the Radial Velocity Experiment, now under way at the 1.2-meter (48-inch) UK Schmidt Telescope
Subsequently, similar clouds were found on plates obtained by David Malin with the UK Schmidt Telescope
at Siding Spring Observatory in Australia.
