I want to use the Data of the Dark Energy Survey to search for Transient Stars, for that purpose i need the epochal instead of only the coadded Data. I did already ask at the NCSA and they said i should look at the NOAO data lab, but all the tables here seem to only contain coadded Data. So i would like to ask if there is a way to access the Epochal Data and if yes where to find it.

The epoch data has not been released by the Survey and is not yet available.  However, there are discussions/plans to perhaps release the epoch data in the near future (perhaps this summer).  The NOAO Science Archive and Data Lab do have all of the original image data available, but photometry from each image would need to be extracted yourself and matched to exposures used to produce the DES object table.

The NOAO Source Catalog (i.e. the 'nsc_dr1' tables in Data Lab) is produced from all available DECam exposures and the object table is online.  The individual measurement table from those images is being prepared now and we expect will be available before the upcoming June AAS meeting in a few weeks.
