FRATTARE Space Telescope Science Institute, 3700 San Martin Drive, Baltimore, MD 21218; frattare@stsci.edu Received 2000 August 18; accepted 2000 October 12 ABSTRACT The KPNO International Spectroscopic Survey (KISS) is a new objective- prism survey for extragalactic emission-line objects. It combines many of the features of previous slitless spectroscopic surveys with the advantages of modern CCD detectors and is the first purely digital objective-prism survey for emission-line galaxies. Here we present the first list of emission-line galaxy candidates selected from our red spectral data, which cover the spectral range 6400 to 7200 E. In most cases, the detected emission line is H{alpha}. The current survey list covers a 1^deg^-wide strip located at {delta} = 29^deg^30'(B1950.0) and spanning the right ascension range 12^h^15^m^ to 17^h^0^m^. An area of 62.2 deg^2^ is covered. A total of 1128 candidate emission-line objects have been selected for inclusion in the survey list (18.1 deg^-2^). We tabulate accurate coordinates and photometry for each source, as well as estimates of the redshift and emission-line flux and equivalent width based on measurements of the digital objective-prism spectra. The properties of the KISS emission-line galaxies are examined using the available observational data. Key words: galaxies: Seyfert-galaxies: starburst-surveys
