From the observations we have assembled a catalog of about ∼7800 sources distributed over an area of approximately 30'x40', the largest of any survey deeper than the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) in this region. The catalog provides absolute coordinates accurate to about 0.15-arcsec and 3σ photometry in the 2MASS system down to J~=19.5mag, H~=18.0mag, Ks~=18.5mag, enough to detect planetary size objects 1Myr old under AV~=10mag of extinction at the distance of the Orion Nebula. Description: The observations were performed on the nights of 2005 January 1 and 2 in the J, H, and Ks filters using the Double Correlated Sampling readout mode at the CTIO Blanco 4m telescope.

Note (1): The 174 sources taken from the 2MASS catalog have a progressive ID starting from 10,000. Sources from the Muench et al. (2002, Cat. J/ApJ/573/366, MLLA NNNNA in Simbad) catalog have their original entry number added to either 20,000 or 21,000, depending if the photometry was derived from FLWO or VLT observations (for sources having both measurements, the FLWO photometry has been adopted). Note (2): Based on the Ks band value if the source is detected and not saturated, otherwise the H band or the J band, in the order. Note (3): Calibrated to the photometric 2MASS system. Note (5): Set to either 3 or 30, it refers to the exposure time in seconds of the individual frames building the image from which the photometry has been taken. Sources with exptime=3 are generally saturated in the 30 s exposures. Note (6): Source flag as follows: 1 = source is point-like, detected during the first photometric extraction 2 = source is point-like, detected after PSF subtraction 3 = source appears extended (galaxies, proplyds, diffuse objects in general) Note (7): Sources detected multiple times have the clone value equal to the ID value of their first appearance in the database, multiplied by -1.
