A systematic search by microscope for non-stellar objects on POSSII R film copies in a part of the northern galactic plane has led to the detection of about 3500 objects. The vast majority are obscured galaxies, most of which are new. We present coordinates and optical diameters of these galaxy candidates, list coincidences with objects in optical and infrared catalogues and discuss their distribution along the galactic plane[*].

Key words: catalogs -- (ISM): dust, extinction -- Galaxy: structure
