Abstract: The Northern Sky Optical Cluster Survey is a project to create an objective catalog of galaxy clusters over the entire high--galactic--latitude Northern sky using the object catalogs from DPOSS. This contribution presents our cluster detection technique, some initial results for a ∼5000° well-calibrated area, as well as effective photometric redshift and richness estimators for our clusters.
