Rolf Jansen's SDSS-III (DR12) SQL galaxy search page
In the FROM block below, substitute RA,Dec,RADIUS with the
RA and Dec (both in degrees), and search radius (in arcmin).
Otherwise, modify as needed (see the
schema browser for the available views and columns to select from).
In particular, omit the "TOP 100" after verifying that the query results are
sensible. The cone search
"dbo.fGetNearbyObjEq(RA,Dec,RADIUS)" may be replaced with a rectangular area
Hitting Reset will restore the default SQL query.
Note, that as of DR8 the isophotal parameters isoA_*, isoB_*, and
isoPhi_* have been dropped from CAS. Reconstruct
alternative size, shape, and orientation measures based on, e.g., petroRad_*,
expAB_*, and expPhi_*, instead.
