   DCMC (DENIS Catalogue of the Magellanic Clouds) Write:<<DCMC JHHMMSS.ss+DDMMSS.s>> N: 1314009+318631 Object:*  (SIMBAD class: Star) Note:first version of a complete near infrared Point Source Catalogue (PSC) towards the Magellanic Clouds (MCs) extracted from the data obtained with the Deep Near Infrared Survey of the Southern Sky - DENIS (Epchtein+ 1997Msngr..87...27E)
The catalogue covers an area of 19.87times 16sq.deg centered on 5 27 20 -69 00 00 for the LMC, and 14.7times 10sq.deg centered on 1 02 40 -73 00 00 for the SMC.
It contains 1314009 sources towards the LMC and 318631 sources towards the SMC each detected in at least 2 of the 3 photometric bands involved in the survey.
70per100 of the detected sources are real members of the MCs respectively, and consist mainly of red giants, asymptotic giant branch stars and supergiants.
The observations have all been made with the same instrument and therefore provide a homogeneous set of photometric data.
