We determine the space density of UV-luminous star-burst galaxies at z~6 using deep HST ACS SDSS-i' (F775W) and SDSS-z' (F850LP) and VLT ISAAC J and K_s band imaging of the Chandra Deep Field South. We find 8 galaxies and one star with (i'-z')>1.5 to a depth of z'{AB}= 25.6 (an 8-sigma detection in each of the 3 available ACS epochs). This corresponds to an unobscured star formation rate of ~15M_sun/yr/h{70}^2 at z=5.8, equivalent to L* for the Lyman break population at z =3-4 (Omega_{Lambda}=0.7, Omega_M=0.3). We are sensitive to star forming galaxies at 5.6
