Observation of the transit of the exoplanet from the night between Saturday and Sunday (September 9 – 10, 2023). The target was Kepler-718b in the constellation of Cygnus. The target was quite dim for the Taurus Hill Observatory’s equipment, only 15.2 mag. That’s why the exposure was 150 s long and few observation points were […]
HAT-P-61b exoplanet transit observation. The observed values differ quite a lot from the catalog values: the duration of the transit was 85 min (vs. 100 min) and the dimming was 17.3 mmag (vs. 10.4 mmag). The focus was done poorly and maybe the choice of reference stars was not quite right. This object has been […]
The first exoplanet transit observation of the new observation season at Taurus Hill Observatory on August 20 – 21, 2023. Now, towards the end of August, the night sky is already dark long enough for the entire transit to be observed. At night, the target was the transit of the exoplanet WTS-2b in the constellation […]
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.
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, […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.). 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.
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.
