J/A+A/375/275       Asteroidal I, J, K in the DENIS Survey   (Baudrand+ 2001)

Asteroidal I, J, K magnitudes recovered in the DENIS Survey: first release Baudrand A., Bec-Borsenberger A., Borsenberger J., Barucci M.A. <Astron. Astrophys. 375, 275 (2001)> =2001A&A...375..275B
ADC_Keywords: Surveys; Minor planets; Photometry, infrared Keywords: asteroids ; infrared ; solar system ; survey Description: I, J, K magnitudes of 1233 asteroids (numbered between 1 and 8000) are presented here. These asteroids have been recovered in the DENIS Survey (Deep European Near-Infrared southern sky Survey) on the basis of their predicted ephemerides. The observations were performed with the 1m-telescope at ESO, La Silla (Chile). The limiting magnitudes of the three bands I, J, K centered at 0.8, 1.25 and 2.15 microns are respectively 18.5, 16.5 and 13.5. File Summary:
