Abstract: This contribution presents MIR images of the circumnuclear regions of NGC1808 and NGC1365, two actively star forming galaxies. The observations were performed with TIMMI2 at the La Silla 3.6m telescope, at ~ 0.6″ resolution. An up to now unknown population of MIR compact sources was discovered in the kpc area surrounding the active nuclei. In both cases, the MIR sources are coincident with previously known compact radio sources. They are thought to be highly extincted (Av = 30 − 100), young (5Myr) massive (106MSolar) proto-globular clusters.
