Abstract (from CDS):

We present a catalog of photometry and photometric redshifts of 335 faint objects in the Hubble Deep Field South near-infrared camera and multiobject spectrograph (NICMOS) field. The analysis is based on (1) infrared images obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) using the NICMOS with the F110W, F160W, and F222M filters; (2) an optical image obtained with HST using the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph with no filter; and (3) optical images obtained with the European Southern Observatory Very Large Telescope with U, B, V, R, and I filters. The primary utility of the catalog of photometric redshifts is as a survey of faint galaxies detected in the NICMOS F160W and F222M images. The sensitivity of the survey varies significantly with position, reaching a limiting depth of AB(16000)~28.7 and covering 1.01 arcmin2 to AB(16000)=27 and 1.05 arcmin2 to AB(16000)=26.5. The catalog of photometric redshifts identifies 21 galaxies (or 6% of the total) of redshift z>5, eight galaxies (or 2% of the total) of redshift z>10, and 11 galaxies (or 3% of the total) of best-fit spectral type E/S0, of which five galaxies (or 1% of the total) are of redshift z>1.
