The Automated Quasar Detection (AQD) technique has been applied to six connected fields near the South Galactic Pole. A comparison with the Veron & Veron catalogue (1993) and the Cristiani et al. compilation (1995) shows that AQD re-discovered ~75% of the known quasars with non-overlapping objective-prism spectra present in these fields (~40% if only the high probability candidates are considered). A list of the 1592 high probability candidates is given, including the results of cross-correlation with X-ray and radio catalogues.
