Stacked spectra of more than 46,000 quasars from the SDSS; each spectrum has been converted to a single horizontal line, and they are stacked one above the other with the closest quasars at the bottom and the most distant quasars at the top. Credit: X. Fan and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.

Also, Reidar Hahn from the Fermilab Visual Media Services created some high resolution images of the telescope and SDSS data (see below). Credit for these should go to them, while in addition, the credit for the composite image of Andromeda Galaxy taken with SDSS telescope should be, The Sloan Digital Sky Survey Collaboration, http://www.sdss.org or simply “The SDSS Collaboration, http://www.sdss.org”.
