HAT-P-13b and Qatar-2b.
The autumn season has started with usual rainy weathers but Taurus Hill Observatory’s research team member Veli-Pekka Hentunen managed to measure the light curve of exoplanet KOI127b. KOI127b is one of the exoplanet candidates found by the Kepler-satellite. For the light curve 102 images with 150 seconds exposure time were taken. The star wich expolanet […]
Veli-Pekka Hentunen from Taurushill Observatory research team managed to measure the light curve of the exoplanet GJ436b 23./24.1.2014. This measurement has been reported to the TRESCA database. Below is the light curve and the direct link to the TRESCA is http://var2.astro.cz/EN/tresca/transit-detail.php?id=1390572602
Observed by Kepler-satellite, but still marked as unconfirmed exoplanet, the KOI1540 was observed at Taurus Hill Observatory 3.-4.10.2013. The transit of the exoplanet last about 154 minutes and it dimmed the brightness of the mother star about 54 mmag. The star that KOI1540 rotates is quite dim, only 15,56 magnitudes. Overall THO research team took […]
The bright spring sky makes the light curve measuremets quite challenging. Despite this the Taurus Hill Observatory research team managed to observe and measure the transit of the exoplanet KOI 256b 30.4.2011. KOI 256b is located in Draco and it has been discovered by Kepler-telescope. KOI 256b is still in the list of unconfirmed discoveries. […]
Taurus Hill Observatory research team continued the exoplanet observation by observing exoplanet KOI 203b twice in short time. The exoplanet is located in Cygnus and the mother star is quite dim for the photometric measurements, only 14.4 magnitudes. In the first measurement (22./23.4.2011) the duration of the transit, according the measurements, was 128.4 minutes and […]
Exoplanet KOI 1452b was observed at Taurus Hill Observatory second time 19./20.4.2011. The object is still listed as unconfirmed in Keplers exoplanet discoveries. According the THO measurements the duration of the transit was 118.7 minutes and the dimmening of the mother star 14.8 mmag. This observation has been published in TRESCA database (CREDIT TRESCA: http://var2.astro.cz/EN/tresca/transit-detail.php?id=1303267527 ).
Taurus Hill Observatory research team observed and measured the transit of the HAT-P-20b 18./19.4.2011 at THO. The object is located in Gemini about 228 light years from Earth. The mother star is K type of dwarf star and exoplanet very massive, over seven times the size of Jupiter. The duration of the transit was 104.4 […]
The transit of the exoplanet HAT-P-18b was observed at Taurus Hill Observatory 10./11.4.2011. The object is located about 540 light years from Earth and the mother star is K-type of star. The period of the planet is 5.5 days and it is so called “Hot Jupiter”. According the measurements the duration of the transit was […]
