The table has indices that cover the most frequently accessed PhotoObj columns.

nametypelengthunitucddescription
objIDbigint8 ID_MAINUnique SDSS identifier composed from [skyVersion,rerun,run,camcol,field,obj].
skyVersiontinyint1 CODE_MISC0 = OPDB target, 1 = OPDB best
runsmallint2 OBS_RUNRun number
rerunsmallint2 CODE_MISCRerun number
camcoltinyint1 INST_IDCamera column
fieldsmallint2 ID_FIELDField number
objsmallint2 ID_NUMBERThe object id within a field. Usually changes between reruns of the same field.
modetinyint1 CLASS_OBJECT1: primary, 2: secondary, 3: family object.
nChildsmallint2 NUMBERNumber of children if this is a composite object that has been deblended. BRIGHT (in a flags sense) objects also have nchild == 1, the non-BRIGHT sibling.
typeLink to PhotoTypesmallint2 CLASS_OBJECTMorphological type classification of the object.
probPSFreal4 STAT_PROBABILITYProbability that the object is a star. Currently 0 if type == 3 (galaxy), 1 if type == 6 (star).
insideMaskLink to InsideMasktinyint1 CODE_MISCFlag to indicate whether object is inside a mask and why
