Extract

A near-infrared survey has been conducted of 0.55 square degrees around the Galactic center with the 1 m telescope of Siding Spring Observatory, Australia. From the detected sources, 39 objects which are bright (K<7.6) and red (H-K>1.4) and 11 objects slightly fainter (K~8) have been selected. Subsequently, their 1–20 μm photometry and 2–3.5 μm spectra at a resolution of λ/Δλ∼150 have been obtained with the IRTF atop Mauna Kea, Hawaii.
