The aim of this survey is a search for new YSO (Young Stellar Object) candidates, using two broad-band filters centred at 6.7 and 14.3µm. Although two regions close to the centre of L1551 had to be avoided due to saturation problems, 96 sources were detected in total (76 sources at 6.7µm and 44 sources at 14.3µm). Using the 24 sources detected in both filters, 14 were found to have intrinsic mid-IR excess at 14.3µm and were therefore classified as YSO candidates. Using additional observations in B, V, I, J, H and K obtained from the ground, most candidates detected at these wavelengths were confirmed to have mid-IR excess at 6.7µm as well, and three additional YSO candidates were found. Description: Six regions (total area 0.122sq.deg.) were observed 26 27 September 1997 with ISOCAM, avoiding the mid-IR bright regions around IRS 5/NE and HL/XZ Tau due to saturation problems. The B, V, and I observations were carried out on 1 and 3 December 2001 using the ALFOSC instrument (Andalucia Faint Object Spectrograph and Camera) mounted on the 2.56m NOT telescope. File Summary:
