The Amateur Sky Survey (TASS), a small group of amateurs and professionals working together informally, has been scanning the celestial equator with CCD cameras for almost two years. We present a status report on the results so far, which include V-band and I-band measurements for many hundreds of thousands of stars. As we expected, it is a difficult job to calibrate properly scans from different nights and different sites.
