Abstract: Attention is given to a survey of 200 sq arcmin of high Galactic latitude sky to a 1-Sigma detection limit of 22 mag/sq arcsec at K. This is more than 10 times the area of any previous deep near-IR survey. This survey has yielded about 200 galaxies selected by their 2-micron emission which will be well suited for studying galaxy evolution at moderate redshift (z less than 0.8).
