Abstract (from CDS):

We have compiled the near infrared Point Source Catalogue (PSC) towards the Magellanic Clouds (MCs) extracted from the data obtained with the Deep Near Infrared Survey of the Southern Sky - DENIS (Epchtein et al., 1997Msngr..87...27E). The catalogue covers an area of of 19.87x16 square degrees centered on (α,δ)=(5h27m20s,-69°00'00") for the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) and 14.7x10 square degrees centered on (α,δ)=(1h02m40s,-73°00'00") for the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) at the epoch J2000. It contains about 1300000 sources towards the LMC and 300000 sources towards the SMC each detected in at least 2 of the 3 photometric bands involved in the survey (I, J, Ks). 70% of the detected sources are true members of the Magellanic Clouds, respectively and consist mainly of red giants, asymptotic giant branch stars and super-giants. The observations have all been made with the same instrument and the data have been calibrated and reduced uniformly. The catalogue provides a homogeneous set of photometric data.
