Abstract

We have imaged an 11.5 deg^2 region of sky toward the South Ecliptic Pole (R.A. = 04^h43^m, decl. = −53◦40’, J2000) at 24 and 70μm with MIPS, the Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer. This region is coincident with a field mapped at longer wavelengths by AKARI and BLAST. We discuss our data reduction and source extraction procedures. The median 1σ depths of the maps are 47 μJy beam^(−1) at 24μm and 4.3 mJy beam^(−1) at 70μm. At 24μm, we identify 93,098 point sources with signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) ≥ 5 and an additional 63 resolved galaxies; at 70μm we identify 891 point sources with S/N 6. From simulations, we determine a false detection rate of 1.8% (1.1%) for the 24μm (70μm) catalog. The 24 and 70μm point-source catalogs are 80% complete at 230 μJy and 11 mJy, respectively. These mosaic images and source catalogs will be available to the public through the NASA/IPAC Infrared Science Archive.
