Microvariability and Oscillations of Stars (MOST)

This page provides access to the Microvariability and Oscillations of Stars (MOST) data collection.

MOST is a Canadian microsatellite designed to monitor optical variability in a few stellar targets for up to 60 days. As the first telescope dedicated to asteroseismology, it was a pathfinder for the subsequent COROT and Kepler missions and is still in operation.
