Abstract
High-z galaxies beyond redshift ~ 4 are essentially detected from ground based observations through their Lyα emission. The anticipated Lyα flux of galaxies at redshifts ~ 6 and beyond is a few times 0.1 10-17 ergs.s-1.cm-2 and its detection requires observations in low background conditions, when the observing wavelength is pushed into the near IR domain. We have carried out observations on 4-8 m telescopes to search for high z galaxies at 920 nm, 1060 and 1187 nm, resorting to various techniques: Narrow Band (NB) imaging and multi-slit windows. Observations, data reduction and preliminary results are described.
