The Sloan Digital Sky Survey has obtained 450 square degrees of photometric scan data to date, in five broad-band colors (u',g',r',i',z'). With this imaging data, we search for clusters of galaxies to r' = 21.5 out to z ~0.5 in an automated way. Similar results are obtained using three different algorithms. We compare the results of these techniques and present various morphological/color characteristics of these newly detected clusters.
