   ISOSS (ISO Serendipity Survey) Write:<<ISOSS JHHMMm+DDMMa>> N: 2000 Object:(IR)  (SIMBAD class: IR = Infra-Red source) Note:The ISOPHOT Serendipity Survey utilized the otherwise unused slew time between ISO's pointed observations with strip scanning measurements at 170um.
More than 12000 slew measurements exceeding 150000 degrees slew length and totaling nearly 550 hours of observing time were collected with ISOPHOT's 2x2 pixel C200 array, leading to an incomplete sky survey with a coverage of about 15%. Sources detected on the slews comprise mostly unresolved galaxies and compact galactic knots, which will be collected in the ISOSS source catalogue.
