We investigate the extent to which the Palomar-Green (PG) Bright Quasar Survey (BQS) is complete and representative of the general quasar population by comparing it with imaging and spectroscopy from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). A comparison of SDSS and PG photometry of both stars and quasars reveals the need to apply a color and magnitude recalibration to the PG data. Using the SDSS photometric catalog, we define the PG's parent sample of objects that are not main-sequence stars and… 
The sloan digital sky survey quasar catalog. - V. Seventh data release
We present the fifth edition of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Quasar Catalog, which is based upon the SDSS Seventh Data Release. The catalog, which contains 105,783 spectroscopically confirmed
Infrared Spectra and Photometry Of Complete Samples of Palomar-Green and Two Micron All Sky Survey Quasars
As a step toward a comprehensive overview of the infrared (IR) diagnostics of the central engines and host galaxies of quasars at low redshift, we present Spitzer Space Telescope spectroscopic (5-40
THE CARNEGIE-IRVINE GALAXY SURVEY. II. ISOPHOTAL ANALYSIS
The Carnegie-Irvine Galaxy Survey (CGS) is a comprehensive investigation of the physical properties of a complete, representative sample of 605 bright (B{sub T} {<=} 12.9 mag) galaxies in the
The sloan digital sky survey quasar survey: Quasar luminosity function from data release 3
We determine the number counts and z = 0-5 luminosity function for a well-defined, homogeneous sample of quasars from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). We conservatively define the most uniform
Setting UBVRI Photometric Zero-Points Using Sloan Digital Sky Survey ugriz Magnitudes
We discuss the use of Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) ugriz point-spread function (PSF) photometry for setting the zero points of UBVRI CCD images. From a comparison with the Landolt (1992) standards
OTELO survey: deep BVRI broad-band photometry of the Groth strip
Context. The Groth field is one of the sky regions that will be targeted by the OTELO (OSIRIS Tunable Filter Emission Line Object) survey in the optical 820 nm and 920 nm atmospheric windows. A
Infrared spectra and photometry of complete samples of PG and 2MASS quasars
As a step toward a comprehensive overview of the infrared diagnostics of the central engines and host galaxies of quasars at low redshift, we present Spitzer Space Telescope spectroscopic (5-40
Optical Morphologies of Millijansky Radio Galaxies Observed by HST and in the VLA FIRST Survey
We report on a statistical study of the 51 radio galaxies at the millijansky flux level from the Faint Images of the Radio Sky at Twenty centimeters, including their optical morphologies and
The X-Ray-to-Optical Properties of Optically Selected Active Galaxies over Wide Luminosity and Redshift Ranges
We present partial-correlation analyses that examine the strengths of the relationships between l2500 A, l2 keV, αOX, and redshift for optically selected active galactic nuclei (AGNs). We extend the
Exploration of quasars with the Gaia mission
We analyze the opportunities in and limits to investigating quasars with the Gaia satellite by studying Gaia’s low- and high-resolution quasar spectra, with consideration of their signal-to-noise

Red and Reddened Quasars in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
We investigate the overall continuum and emission-line properties of quasars as a function of their optical/UV spectral energy distributions. Our sample consists of 4576 quasars from the Sloan
An empirical calibration of the completeness of the SDSS quasar survey
Spectra of nearly 20,000 pointlike objects to a Galactic reddening–corrected magnitude of i = 19.1 have been obtained to test the completeness of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) quasar survey. We

We describe the target selection and resulting properties of a spectroscopic sample of luminous red galaxies (LRGs) from the imaging data of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). These galaxies are
