The Southern 2MASS Red AGN Survey: Spectroscopic Observations with 6dF

Masci, Franco; Cutri, R.; Francis, Paul; Nelson, B.; Huchra, J.; Jones, H.; Colless, M.; Saunders, W.


Following the success of The Two Micron All-Sky Survey (2MASS) in revealing large numbers of new optically red AGN and QSOs, we report on an extension of this search in the Southern equatorial sky using the Six Degree Field (6dF) multifibre spectrograph. Near-IR selected samples are more sensitive to objects whose optical emission may be reddened by dust, or is intrinsically weak. Our sample of red AGN candidates was selected using a single color cut of J-Ks > 2 mag and a galactic latitude |b|...[Show more]
