stars, galaxies, and minor planets

I spent most of the productive part of the day confirming that our statistical counterpart associations between GALEX and SDSS match the detailed figures published by the GALEX team here and here. They do, although we have more outliers, in part because we are being too liberal with the input catalogs. The thought of figuring out and applying conservative cuts drove me to outlining the GALEX but not SDSS paper and improving the output of the code I wrote to automatically compare the GALEX orphans against the Minor Planet Checker.
