Exoplanet X0-2 b

Second attempt at an exoplanet. Dips in light curve caused by a moving dark patch in light train – possibly dust or condensation. Would be better data if not for that.

Qatar-1 b First Exoplanet

Been on my list to detect exoplanets for ages and finally got around to doing it. The data is messy and needs to be improved but it does fit the transit.

Top line shows curve before detrending – probably due to airmass changes. Quite serious clarity variations during session.
