How do I...

Upload my own data to see what the SDSS knows about those objects?

You can provide a list of your own objects, then see what those objects look like in the SDSS. This is especially useful when looking for optical counterparts to objects seen in other wavelengths. The tool to do this is the Imaging Cross-Identification tool (link opens in a new window). From the astronomers' home page, look under Search Tools. From the public home page, look under SkyServer Tools, then Object Crossid.

Next: Using the Imaging Cross-ID tool
