Conf. Late-Type Stars, ed. G.W. Lockwood and H.M. Dyck, KPNO Contribution 554, 145) allows the identification and subsequent characterization of their late-type stellar content. Two narrow band filters centred on molecular bands of TiO and CN allow us to distinguish between AGB stars of different chemistries [M-type (O-rich) and C-type (C-rich)]. The faint dwarf spheroidal galaxy And II, a member of the M 31 subgroup, was surveyed. From photometry in V and i as well as in the narrow band filters TiO and CN we were able to identify 7 new AGB carbon stars, to derive their mean absolute <Mi> and bolometric magnitude Mbol, their luminosity function, and their spatial distribution. We are unable to establish the true C/M ratio because the few M stars of And II are overwhelmed by foreground Galactic M st Description: Our observations were obtained with the 2.56 m Nordic Optical Telescopeat La Palma (Spain) during the nights of September 1 and 2, 2000. We observed the field in the four filters described in Table 2.
