 PESSTO uses the EFOSC2 (optical) and SOFI (NIR) spectrographs onboard the NTT and aims to classify 2000 supernovae in its 4-5 years of operations. It is one of two currently running public spectroscopic surveys at ESO. The PESSTO survey relies on other partnered '​feeder'​ surveys to discover fresh supernova candidates that it can then confirm, classify and also follow in detail if they are deemed peculiar or interesting. The feeder surveys include [[http://​hep.yale.edu/​lasillaquest | La Silla-Quest]],​ [[http://​pan-starrs.ifa.hawaii.edu/​public/​ | Pan-STARRS1]],​ [[http://​www.das.uchile.cl/​proyectoCHASE/​ | CHASE]] and eventually [[http://​www.mso.anu.edu.au/​skymapper/​ | SkyMapper]] when it begins full survey operations. PESSTO uses the EFOSC2 (optical) and SOFI (NIR) spectrographs onboard the NTT and aims to classify 2000 supernovae in its 4-5 years of operations.
