SDSS update

The FITS headers generated by the SDSS surveys will now reflect that these are using DR9 data rather than DR8 results. The SDSS site switched to using DR9 a couple of weeks ago. We’re told the primary difference is improved astrometry in the DR9 data.

Note that future SDSS releases are not expected to have significantly greater sky coverage.
