Asteroid hunting question

Is the best place to look for asteroids in the zodiac constellations? Im pretty sure they are along the plane of the solar system

The Legacy Surveys DR9 reductions explicitly attempt to remove asteroids by doing outlier rejection when combining images.

The DECaLS DR5 set is great for asteroid hunting. It has no “trash reduction”, and you can also get the single image cutouts and use the JPL search link there so you don’t have to put in the details manually.
