Abstract

From a visual inspection of J and K images obtained within the Deep Near Infrared Survey (DENIS) we detected 37 noteworthy galaxies near the galactic plane ([FORMULA]). Most of these galaxies are yet uncatalogued. They have either a large dimension (more than 1 arcmin in J-band) or a position very close to the galactic plane ([FORMULA]). Some of these galaxies are simply not visible on the Digitized Sky Survey. Among them 15 galaxies are suspected to be spirals and could be detected from HI observations. Several large galaxies near the assumed position of the Great Attractor suggests that a concentration of galaxies may be present around the equatorial position: [FORMULA], [FORMULA]. An inspection of this field from the Digitized Sky Survey and from available 2MASS data confirms the presence of extragalactic structures.
