Deep Near-Infrared Survey of the southern sky

Sample image of DENIS point sources superimposed on an image
of the optical Digital Sky Survey (DSS-I, STScI)
centered on the Antennae Galaxy (NGC 4038).

DeNIS point sources from the first release of DENIS database (December 1998) are marked as red rhombs. Green squares flag a selection of these sources, for which information is listed in the bottom window.

This image has been produced with the Aladin sky atlas, using a new Java version in beta test.
