[55.11] 2MASS Galaxy Catalog: First Results

T. Chester, T. Jarrett (IPAC, Caltech/JPL), S. Schneider, M. Skrutskie (UMASS Astronomy Program), J. Huchra (Harvard-Smithsonian CfA)

The 2MASS data processing began in mid-April 1998. We will present an overview of the extended sources produced in the first month of processing. The data set is expected to cover 2-4observed J-K color, a proxy for redshift (see Jarrett, T. et al, this meeting), log N / log S, J-H vs. H-K color-color plots, and the variation in numbers of galaxies with sky coordinates. The results will be posted online as they become available.
