A. S. Fruchter, L. E. Bergeron, M. Dickinson, H. C. Ferguson (STScI), R. N. Hook (ST-ECF), J. Mack (STScI), L. Mazzuca, H. I. Teplitz (GSFC), R. van der Marel, R. Williams, D. Zurek (STScI)

As part of the HDF-S campaign, the NICMOS-3 infrared camera on board HST was used to observe an otherwise undistinguished field approximately 8' from QSO-J2233-606. Deep images were obtained in the J, H and K filters with exposure times of ~150 ks in J and H and ~100 ks in K. Additionally, the NICMOS field was observed with the STIS-CCD in open filter (50CCD) mode with a total exposure time of ~25 ksec. Numerous galaxies and stars are detected in the images; among these are some extremely red objects. A catalog of sources, number counts and colors will be presented.
