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.
Possible fireball 27.2. (in the morning at 4.50 am) photographed by the allsky camera of the Taurus Hill Observatory.
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 […]
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. The start of the transit was not measured, as can be seen from the measurement (below).
Three exoplanet observations from January 25-26, 2022. First Qatar-1b, then KPS-1b and lastly HAT-P-36b. These transits occurred appropriately in succession, and almost all of the dark time was utilized from 18:00 to 7:00 (Finnish time).
Taurus Hill Observatory has acquired a new CCD camera. The purchase was confirmed in August 2021, when the observatorys project funding application was approved by the Mansikka ry. The observatory receives a 75% subsidy on the purchase price of the camera. The new camera is an ASI 2600MM Pro and comes with a ZWO EFW […]
