Correlations between intrinsic shear and the density field on large scales, a potentially important contaminant for cosmic shear surveys, have been robustly detected at low redshifts with bright galaxies in SDSS data. Here we present a more detailed characterization of this effect, which can cause anti-correlations between gravitational lensing shear and(More)

The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) started a new phase in 2008 August, with new instrumentation and new surveys focused on Galactic structure and chemical evolution, measurements of the baryon oscillation feature in the clustering of galaxies and the quasar Lyα forest, and a radial velocity search for planets around ∼8000 stars. This paper describes the(More)

We investigate the use of simple colour cuts applied to the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) optical imaging to perform photometric selections of emission line galaxies out to z < 1. Our selection is aimed at discerning three separate redshift ranges: 0.2 z 0.4, 0.4 z 0.6 and 0.6 z 1.0. We calibrate the selections using data taken by the COMBO-17 survey in a(More)
We present measurements of the quasar two-point correlation function, ξ Q , over the redshift range 0.3 ≤ z ≤ 2.2 based upon data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). Using a homogeneous sample of 30,239 quasars with spectroscopic redshifts from the Data Release 5 Quasar Catalogue, our study represents the largest sample used for this type of(More)
