Abstract  The AAVSO Futures meeting, held in Madison, WI, in May 2001, proposed that the AAVSO support near-infrared research with small telescopes. A photometer, the SSP-4, has been developed to provide J- and H-band capability for a reasonable cost. However, proper calibrated photometry requires a set of standard stars. This paper describes such a set of stars, suitable for small telescopes, and with accurate coordinates, proper motions, and high-quality magnitudes.
