The IRSF Magellanic Clouds Point Source Catalog
Corresponding author: firstname.lastname@example.org
We present a near-infrared (JHKs) photometric catalog including 14 822 341 point sources for a 40 deg2 area of the Large Magellanic Cloud, 2 769 682 sources for an 11 deg2 area of the Small Magellanic Cloud, and 434 145 sources for a 4 deg2 area of the Magellanic Bridge. The 10σ limiting magnitudes are 18.8, 17.8, and 16.6 mag at J, H, and Ks, respectively. The photometric and astrometric accuracies for bright sources are 0.03–0.04 mag and 01. Based on the catalog, we also present color-color and color-magnitude diagrams for point sources toward the LMC that show features characteristic of MS stars, giants, AGB stars, and Herbig Ae/Be stars in the LMC and background galaxies. We also present the results of analysis for two active star-forming regions, N159/N160 and N11 in the LMC, that demonstrate the usefulness of our data for studies of star formation. Catalog data are available at http://pasj.asj.or.jp/v59/n3/590315/ and ftp://dbc.nao.ac.jp/DBC/ADACnew/.
