In addition to large numbers of normal stars, we detect a significant population of bright, red infrared sources that we identify as likely to be young stellar objects (YSOs). We use spectral energy distribution (SED) fits to classify objects as ordinary (main-sequence or red giant) stars, asymptotic giant branch stars, background galaxies, and YSOs. Description: We performed photometry on the mosaic images with the Astronomical Point Source Extraction (APEX) tasks in the MOPEX package. File Summary:

Note (1): The uncertainties on the luminosities, masses, and stages are calculated as the weighted standard deviation of the luminosities, masses, and stages of all of the acceptable YSO models. In cases where there is only one acceptable model for a given source, or there are multiple models but they all produce the same luminosity/mass/stage, we cannot calculate an uncertainty in this way, so we fill the corresponding space with an ellipsis. Note (2): The χ2 value for the best-fitting SED. Note that these are raw χ2 values, not χ2 per data point, so a good fit (χ2 per data point ≤2.2) can have a χ2 value as high as 8.8 (if there are four flux data points for that source) or more. Note (3): The χ2 value for the best-fitting AGB star or background galaxy SED.
