Abstract

The presence of an extrasolar planet can be revealed when it passes in front of its host star, reducing the star's apparent brightness by ∼ 1%. We are monitoring a large sample (of order 104) of stars using our own 0.5 m telescope at Siding Spring Observatory, Australia, in search of such transiting planets.
