Abstract: This is a preliminary report on our VRIJHK survey centered on the region around Orion's belt. We observed ∼9 deg2 at VRI with the MOSAIC camera and ∼7 deg2 at JHK with the NEWFIRM camera on the KPNO 4m telescope. Our survey will produce a list of photometrically selected candidate very low-mass stars and brown dwarfs with masses down to 10 Jupiter masses (MJ). We discuss the status of our data reductions, and preliminary work on the NEWFIRM photometry.
