SDSS photometry

    Does anyone have any idea how to get the photometry of SDSS data?

    From http://cas.sdss.org/dr6/en/" [Broken].

    Is there anything in particular that you are looking for?

    Actually I would like to find the spectra and photometry for a set of objects,
    I can find the spectra here:
    http://www.sdss.org/dr6/tutorials/colorconstraints.html
    I am wondering if I can find the photometry in a similar way?

    Do you have the ObjID of the objects?

    If so, then it's a piece of cake! Just use http://cas.sdss.org/astro/en/tools/explore/obj.asp" [Broken].

    For example, ObjID is 588298663036649507, http://cas.sdss.org/astro/en/tools/explore/obj.asp?id=588298663036649507"'s what the Explore tool gives you, complete with spectra AND photometry! :smile:

    If you don't know the ObjID, but do know the RA and Dec, then it's just one more step ...
