2. Experimental setup and LMC observations

The telescope, camera, telescope operation and data reduction are as described in Bauer et al. (1997) and Palanque-Delabrouille et al. (1998). Since August 1996, we have been monitoring 66 one square-degree fields in the LMC , simultaneously in two wide passbands. Of these, data prior to May 1998 from 25 square-degrees spread over 43 fields have been analysed. In this period, about 70-110 images of each field were taken, with exposure times ranging from 3 min in the LMC center to 12 min on the periphery; the average sampling is once every 6 days.
