Abstract / Description:The FORS Deep Field project is a multi-colour,
multi-object spectroscopic investigation of a ~
7arcmin x 7arcmin region near the south
galactic pole based mostly on observations
carried out with the FORS instruments attached
to the VLT telescopes. It includes the QSO Q
0103-260 (z = 3.36). The goal of this study is to
improve our understanding of the formation and
evolution of galaxies in the young Universe. In
this paper the field selection, the photometric
observations, and the data reduction are
described. The source detection and photometry
of objects in the FORS Deep Field is discussed in
detail. A combined B and I selected UBgRIJKs
photometric catalog of 8753 objects in the FDF
is presented and its properties are briefly
discussed. The formal 50% completeness limits
for point sources, derived from the co-added
images, are 25.64, 27.69, 26.86, 26.68, 26.37,
23.60 and 21.57 in U, B, g, R, I, J and Ks
(Vega-system), respectively. A comparison of the
number counts in the FORS Deep Field to those
derived in other deep field surveys shows very
good agreement.
