A near-IR survey is conducted in order to penetrate the dust of the Galactic plane through the K window and study the flux from Rayleigh-Jeans tail emission in cool stellar sources. Small-scale NIR surveys are examined which cover the entire Galactic bulge and plane visible from the observation point. A total of 120 scans is reported, and source confusion is identified as a problem that requires the application of time.
