Abstract (from CDS):

A search has been undertaken at Lyon Observatory to identify, by eye, galaxy candidates at galactic latitudes lower than ±15 degrees on the DENIS J and K-band images. This paper presents a list of 2028 objects that were serendipitously detected throughout the DENIS survey. Cross-identification with galaxy entries in the LEDA Database has been performed. Comparison with the second release of the 2MASS survey led to a satisfactory agreement of J band magnitudes (std. dev. = 0.3 mag). The distribution of galaxy candidates along the Galactic Plane shows a concentration near the galactic longitude l=305 °. As a by product of this inspection of J and K images some interesting galactic objects were found (star clusters and nebulae).
