A small number of selected near-infrared and visual photographic pairs from from the Steward Observatory Near Infrared Photographic Sky Survey have been examined for content of stars more red than (V—I) of about 2ṃ5. A simple manual extraction of these objects was carried out as a part of a preliminary evaluation of survey data and techniques for reducing it; the resulting list has been compiled as the first installment of a Catalog of Red Stellar Objects (Craine et al.1979). We present here the results of a cross correlation of this catalog with the IRC, AFGL, and EIC infrared catalogs.¹. The results indicate that these photographs may be particularly useful for purposes of optical identification of short-wavelength infrared sources to limits much fainter than represented by presently existing infrared catalogs.
