HATNet is a network of six identical, fully automated wide field telescopes, four of which are located in Arizona, and two at Hawaii. The purpose of the network is to search for transiting extrasolar planets around relatively bright stars (8 < I < 12). The longitudinal coverage of 3.5 hours greatly enhances transit detection efficiency. HATNet has been operational since 2004, and has taken more than 1/2 million science frames at 5-min integrations, covering about 7% of the sky. Photometric precision reaches 3mmag rms at 5.5 min cadence at I ≈ 8, and is 1% at I ≈ 11.3. Hundreds of transit candidates have been detected in the data, and have been subject to vigorous follow-up by various 1m-class facilities, both spectroscopy and follow-up photometry. A fraction of the candidates that have survived these steps as not being false alarms have been observed by high resolution and precision spectrographs (primarily Keck/HIRES), to confirm their planetary nature and characterize their properties. So far nine transiting planets have been reported, making HATNet a very successful survey.
WHAT is a small-aperture short focal length automated telescope with an 8.2° × 8.2° field of view, located at the Wise Observatory, Israel. The system is similar to the HATNet telescopes and is aimed at searching for transiting extrasolar planets and variable objects. Operational since 2004, WHAT has accumulated ~100000 exposures of several fields and was part of the discovery of the transiting planet HD147506b. Further description of WHAT can be found at: http://wise-obs.tau.ac.il/~what.
