Paper Abstract

Measurements of infrared (2.7-μm) source positions and flux densities have been derived based on an additional 60.6 hours of satellite observations beyond those considered in the preparation of the Equatorial Infrared Catalogue No. 1 (EIC-1). These data have been processed together with the EIC-1 data to produce EIC-2. The new catalogue differs from EIC-1 as follows: there are 1278 sources (vs. 896 in EIC-1); there is a larger percentage of unidentified sources (17% vs. 10%); there are increased numbers of sources identified with Two-Micron Sky Survey sources (101 more than in EIC-1), AFGL sources (38 more), AGK3 stars (91 more) and SAO stars (187 more).
