The goal of Sloan
Digital Sky Survey is mapping one-quarter of the entire sky and
obtaining spectra of galaxies, quasars and stars.
Catalogs of Galaxy Pairs
Karachentsev isolated pair of galaxies in SDSS
The selection criterion for Karachentsev (1972) pairs can be found at NED "Translated by Dr. William Keel".
I used Karachentsev (1972) on the SDSS EDR and
identified 1479 isolated merging galaxy candidates also see Table (1) .
