Deep Near Infrared Survey
of the Southern Sky
DENIS view of galactic center

DENIS is a deep astronomical survey of the Southern Sky in two near-infrared bands (J at 1.25 µm and K at 2.16 µm) and one optical band (I at 0.8 µm) simultaneously, conducted by a European consortium, using a one meter telescope (ESO, La Silla). The survey started in 1996 and operations at La Silla have been completed on 9 Sept. 2001.
