Abstract

We present new counts of field galaxies from more than 20 arcmin2 to a limiting magnitude of K = 20 and from 2 arcmin2 to K = 21.5. At the faintest magnitudes, the counts are slightly higher than those reported previously, though still consistent given the small numbers of galaxies in the two samples. galaxies: general - infrared: galaxies.
