J/A+A/423/381       Asteroidal I, J, K in the DENIS Survey   (Baudrand+, 2004)

Asteroidal I, J, K magnitudes recovered in the DENIS Survey: second release. Baudrand A., Bec-Borsenberger A., Borsenberger J. <Astron. Astrophys. 423, 381 (2004)> =2004A&A...423..381B
ADC_Keywords: Surveys ; Minor planets ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: infrared: solar system - minor planets: asteroids - surveys Description: I, J, K magnitudes of 767 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:
