SDSS DR16 Selection

This is a redacted version of the SDSS DR16 table prepared for VizieR (V/154/sdss16). It is mainly here to facilitate local matches; for original SDSS-related research, it is probably better to somewhere else. Over VizieR and SDSS, we are keeping most of the per-band values in arrays to keep the column list manageable. Note that in ADQL, array indexes are 1-based. We are trying to orient our column names on SDSS but use underscores instead of camel-casing (e.g. spec_obj_id instead of SpecObjID), since mixed-case identifiers in SQL is asking for trouble. To save space, we do not keep psf-based classifications, per-band offsets, spectrum metadata, and USNO-related information in this table. Let the operators know if you need any of that.
