Abstract: We report on the scientific progress on a wide field infrared survey being carried out at the 2.5m Isaac Newton Telescope with CIRSI, a unique infrared camera based on a mosaic of 4 1024 X 1024 HAWAII arrays. In normal operation the arrays are read out continuously with a sustained rate of two or more complete image datasets per minute. We have developed a highly automated IRAF-based data reduction package, CIRDR, that can be used for both quick look data inspection, and generation of astrometrically calibrated science quality 4096 X 4096 images based on a contiguous 4 X 4 mosaic.
