The fourth data release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
This paper describes the Fourth Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), including all survey-quality data taken through 2004 June. The data release includes five-band photometric dataExpand
The Field of Streams: Sagittarius and its Siblings
We use Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Data Release 5 (DR5) u, g, r, i, z photometry to study Milky Way halo substructure in the area around the north Galactic cap. A simple color cut (g - r < 0.4)Expand
The Second Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) has validated and made publicly available its Second Data Release. This data release consists of 3324 deg2 of five-band (ugriz) imaging data with photometry forExpand
Cats and dogs, hair and a hero: A quintet of new milky way companions
We present five new satellites of the Milky Way discovered in Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) imaging data, four of which were followed-up with either the Subaru or the Isaac Newton Telescopes. TheyExpand
The Luminosity Function of the Milky Way Satellites
We quantify the detectability of stellar Milky Way satellites in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Data Release 5. We show that the effective search volumes for the recently discoveredExpand
The Highly Unusual Chemical Composition of the Hercules Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy
We report on the abundance analysis of two red giants in the faint Hercules dwarf spheroidal (dSph) galaxy. These stars show a remarkable deficiency in the neutron-capture elements, while theExpand
A Faint New Milky Way Satellite in Bootes
We announce the discovery of a new satellite of the Milky Way in the constellation of Bootes at a distance of ~60 kpc. It was found in a systematic search for stellar overdensities in the northExpand
Chemical Enrichment in the Faintest Galaxies: the Carbon and Iron Abundance Spreads in the Bo\
TLDR
The correlation between (decreasing) luminosity and both mean metallicity and (increasing) abundance dispersion in the Milky Way dwarf galaxies at least as faint as M{sub V} = -5.5) is confirmed. Expand
The Accretion Origin of the Milky Way’s Stellar Halo
We have used data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Data Release 5 to explore the overall structure and substructure of the stellar halo of the Milky Way using ~4 million color-selectedExpand
Discovery of an unusual dwarf galaxy in the outskirts of the Milky Way
We announce the discovery of a new dwarf galaxy, Leo T, in the Local Group. It was found as a stellar overdensity in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 5 (SDSS DR5). The color-magnitudeExpand
