Clear nights this fall have been quite rare. At the Taurus Hill Observatory, transit observations of exoplanets were made in October on two nights between Sunday and Monday, October 23-24. and 30 – 31.10. The target objects were Qatar-4b, WASP-12b, K2-30b and HAT-P-52b. Photos: credit Tresca ETD.

THO in Europlanet Science Congress 2022 in Granada, Spain
After several years, the European planetary research community will gather at the traditional EPSC (Europlanet Science Congress) conference on September 18-23. This year, EPSC will be held in Granda, Spain, where it was originally supposed to be held already in 2020. The last two EPSC conferences have been held as remote conferences via the internet, […]
HAT-P-3b exoplanet transit.
The light curve of the HAT-P-3b exoplanet transit did come completely by “fluttering”. Everything seemed to go wrong when measuring, but still the light curve is quite reasonable. At the beginning of the measuring, the camera cell was right on ice. The first target HAT-P-36b failed at all due to camera cell freezing. Due to […]
WASP-48b and TOI2152.01b transit observations from 21.-22.3.2022 night.
Couple of exoplanet transit observations from 21.-22.3.2022 night. WASP-48b and TOI2152.01b. The TOI2152.01b transit occurred approximately 20 min earlier than predicted. The brightness of the morning already hindered the measurement of the rest of the transit. Otherwise, the transit should be clear. There are no previous measurements on this subject, at least in the TRESCA […]
Exoplanets WASP-12b and WASP-92b were observed 19.-20.3.2022
Couple exoplanet observations from the night 19.-20.3.2022. Observed exoplanets were WASP-12b and WASP-92b.
Light curves of the three exoplanets from the last couple of nights (17.-18.3.)
Light curves of the three exoplanets from the last couple of nights (17.-18.3.). The beginning of the last one was omitted, because the transit took place about 1.5 hours earlier than had been reported in the catalog data.
KPS-1b and Qatar-1b light curves from the 28.2./1.3.
Exoplanet light curves from the 28.2./1.3. night: KPS-1b and Qatar-1b. The transit of KPS-1b was about an hour later than predicted.
The transit of the Qatar-8b exoplanet on February 26, 2022
The transit of the Qatar-8b exoplanet on February 26, 2022 from 6:18 pm to 11:34 pm. The transit took place three hours earlier than mentioned in the catalogs. This time THO team prepared and almost entire transit was observed. It was still so bright at the begin of the transit that the measurement was impossible […]
THO “Europlanet Telescope Network Science Virtual Workshop” presentation available
The Europlanet Telescope Network Science Virtual Workshop was held February 9 – 11, 2022 as a virtual meeting and Taurus Hill Observatory had a poster presentation in Exoplanet-session. The poster “Taurus Hill Observatory capabilities and exoplanet research work” is now available and you can check it out by clicking this link.
Qatar-8b transit was observed in Taurus Hill Observatory on 11./12.2.
Qatar-8b transit was observed in Taurus Hill Observatory on 11./12.2. The start of the transit was not measured, as can be seen from the measurement (below).
