5. Summary of ISO identifications
A total of 54 mid-IR sources were detected in a deep survey of the CFRS 1415+52 field with ISOCAM. The reliability of the detections of these predominantly very faint sources has been strengthened through comparison of the results of two completely independent analyses of the data. The counts at 6.75µm are in a very good agreement with those of the Deep ISOCAM Survey (Lockman-Hole Survey) which is 0.22 counts per sq. arcmin for Jy. Further support for the reliability of the identifications is provided by the properties of their optical counterparts:
Clearly, the ISOCAM LW2 sources have different average properties than a random sample of CFRS galaxies, giving additional confidence in our detections, even down to .
