13 Robotic Telescopes Scientific Activity Astrobiology Exoplanets Search Characterization Solar type stars Comets and NEOs Other lines Variable stars Opportunity objects Galactic surveys (PN, HII, SNR) Advantages Observations without operator Huge amount of data Automatic data reduction and analysis Photometry and astrometry OBJECTIVES

14 DETECTION METHODS Transits Photometry (0.01-1%)=>mmag Repeatability > 60 planets HD b (1999) 47 pc 0.69 M J 1.32 R J UA 3.5 d 86.7 º 2,5 hours Exoplanets SEARCH

15 Exoplanets Use of Robotic Telescopes Data about the planet A lot of observation time Light curves => increase s/σ Mass, size and distances Begin and end Orbital cycles Max and min CHARACTERIZATION

16 Exoplanets RESULTS TrES3
