We report the discovery and orbital determination of 14 trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) from the ESSENCE Supernova Survey difference imaging data set. Two additional objects discovered in a similar search of the SDSS-II Supernova Survey database were recovered in this effort. ESSENCE repeatedly observed fields far from the solar system ecliptic (-21° < β < -5°), reaching limiting magnitudes per observation of I ≈ 23.1 and R≈ 23.7. We examine several of the newly detected objects in detail,...[Show more]
