A Wide and Deep Solar System Survey

The dynamical and physical properties of small bodies in our Solar
System offer one of the few constraints on the formation, evolution
and migration of the planets.  The recent advent of sensitive,
wide-field digital detectors on large class telescopes are allowing us
to complete the inventory of our Solar System and obtain detailed
knowledge about the small bodies it contains.  I will discuss the
recent results we have obtained through our ongoing very wide and deep
solar system survey with a focus on the discovery and characterization
of Neptune Trojans, Main Belt Comets and objects beyond the Kuiper
Belt edge.
