Abstract: We have revealed a number of sources still remaining in the IRAS catalogs with no convincing optical identification. Their IR colors and high galactic latitudes indicate on faint galaxies (fainter the DSS limit). These empty fields have been observed with the Byurakan Observatory 2.6m telescope in B,V,R,I colors. Faint formations have been revealed. This program will reveal objects to be studied in details with larger telescopes and the SIRTF.
