Deep Imaging of Field Galaxies at Short Wavelengths

A deep CCD survey of field galaxies to U ≳ 25.5 verifies to fainter magnitudes the steep slope in the ultraviolet galaxy counts found by Koo (1986) for 20 ≲ U ≲ 22. The sensitivity to the epoch of galaxy formation of still fainter surveys at short wavelengths is discussed.
