We provide a description of the observations, data reduction and source catalog construction. From our single pointing GMRT observation of ∼12 hours we obtain a high-resolution (26"x22") image of ∼11.3 square degrees, fully covering the Bootes field region and beyond. Description: The source catalog presented here is derived from a ∼12 hour single pointing with the GMRT at 153 MHz, centered at the NOAO Bootes field. The resulting 11.3 square degree image has a central noise level of ∼1mJy/beam and a resolution of 26"x22". File Summary:
