Rapid Extraction of Galaxies from DENIS
In order to face the challenge of collecting data for deep extragalactic samples it is necessary to identify new galaxies and to collect the main information on them: coordinates, magnitudes, diameters and axis ratios, position angles and morphological types. The DENIS project is a great opportunity to do that. It is the first time that such a survey is undertaken by getting CCD images directly at the telescope for an entire hemisphere. This new way of making a survey provides us with incredibly high quality images compared with photographic counterparts.
