Our analysis employs deep RIzJHK photometry of an 8.5'x8.5' region to select a sample of 68 EROs with (R-K)≥5.3 and brighter than K=20.5 (5σ). We combine this photometric data set with an extremely deep 1.4GHz radio map of the field obtained from the VLA. This map reaches a 1σ limiting flux density of 3.5µJy , making it the deepest 1.4GHz map taken, and is sensitive enough to detect an active galaxy with L1.4≳1023W/Hz at z>1. Description: The radio image of A851 comprises a combination of A, B, C, and D configuration observations from the National Radio Astronomy Observatory's VLA taken at 1.4GHz between 1996 and 2000. Our primary near-infrared imaging data set comes from wide-field images in JHK taken with the KPNO 2.1 m telescope on the nights of 2001 January 4-11. On the nights of 1999 February 28, March 0102, and March 1516 we completed a K-band mosaic of 5x5 pointings using the UFTI imager on UKIRT On 2000 December 1112 we used the INGRID near-infrared imager in the WHT to obtain a J-band image of the cluster core. The optical imaging to complement our deep near-infrared data sets was obtained from three facilities. We have two wide-field imaging data sets of this region. The first comes from Suprime-Cam on Subaru (courtesy of T. Kodama) and consists of very deep RI imaging of a 27'x27' field centered on the cluster core, taken on the nights of 2001 January 21-22. We also have obtained similarly a wide-field KPNO 4m image in the z band, obtained on the night of 2001 January 25/26. Finally, an HST/WFPC2 mosaic of A851 has been observed in the F702W filter, but we will not use the HST imaging in our analysis. File Summary:
