Two Micron All-Sky Survey

(2MASS)
(near-infrared survey of both hemispheres)

The Two Micron All-Sky Survey is a survey of the entire sky by two telescopes, in Mt. Hopkins, Arizona and Cerro Tololo, Chile. The sky was imaged in three bands: J (1.25um), H (1.65um), and K(s)(2.17um), i.e., the JHK Photometric System (JHK). Final data was released in 2003.

Targets included galaxies obscured by Milky Way light, Brown Dwarves (BD), Low Mass Stars, and general cataloging.
