As part of the HDF-S campaign, the NICMOS-3 infrared camera on board
HST was used to observe an otherwise undistinguished field
approximately 8' from QSO-J2233-606. Deep images were obtained in the
J, H and K filters with exposure times of ~150 ks in J and H and ~100
ks in K. Additionally, the NICMOS field was observed with the STIS-CCD
in open filter (50CCD) mode with a total exposure time of ~25
ksec. Numerous galaxies and stars are detected in the images; among
these are some extremely red objects. A catalog of sources, number
counts and colors will be presented.
