VVV galaxies behind Galactic bulge overdensity (Galdeano+, 2021)

In the present work, we use data from the tile b204 located in the Galactic bulge at l=355.182{deg} and b=-9.68974{deg} ({alpha}=273.72{deg} and {beta}=-37.87{deg}). This tile was selected because of its position at the edge of the bulge, which implies a low stellar density and also low extinction, relative to the tiles in the center of the bulge and disc, within the VVV survey area. Searching for extragalactic sources in the tile b204 allows us to test a reliable method for galaxy identification in the bulge area of the VVV survey.
