The Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey. VLT/ISAAC near-infrared imaging of the GOODS-South field. Retzlaff J., Rosati P., Dickinson M., Vandame B., Rite C., Nonino M., Cesarsky C., The GOODS Team <Astron. Astrophys., 511, A50-50 (2010)> =2010A&A...511A..50R

The survey covers an area of 172.5, 159.6 and 173.1arcmin2 in the J, H, and Ks bands, respectively. For point sources total limiting magnitudes of J=25.0, H=24.5, and Ks=24.4 (5σ, AB) are reached within 75% of the survey area. Thus these observations are significantly deeper than the previous EIS Deep Public Survey which covers the same region. The image quality is characterized by a point spread function ranging between 0.34" and 0.65" FWHM. The images are registered to a common astrometric grid defined by the GSC 2 with an accuracy of ∼0.06" RMS over the whole field. The overall photometric accuracy, including all systematic effects, adds up to 0.05mag. The data are publicly available from the ESO science archive facility. Description: The data were obtained under the ESO large programme 168.A-0485, led by Cesarsky, in direct support to the GOODS project. Data covering four ISAAC fields in J and Ks bands were also drawn from the ESO programmes 64.O-0643, 66.A-0572 and 68.A-0544, led by Giallongo (see Saracco et al., 2001, Cat. J/A+A/375/1).
