Two Micron All-sky Survey

(near-infrared survey of both hemispheres)

The Two Micron All-sky Survey is a near-infrared survey of the entire sky by two telescopes, in Mt. Hopkins, Arizona and Cerro Tololo, Chile. The sky was imaged in three bands: J (1.25um), H (1.65um), and K(s)(2.17um), i.e., the JHK photometric system. Final data was released in 2003. Targets included galaxies obscured by Milky Way light, brown dwarfs, low mass stars, and general cataloging.
