I am a new member that is interested in ultimately trying to see if I can see exoplanet transits. I know this is a very tall order, but the journey is always the most fun. I will most definitely start small and start evaluating the equipment I have access to for noise, and how well I can follow known variables. Then go on to looking at fainter variables to see were my limits are. I was just wondering if there were others in the community interested in, or already looking at exoplanets.
A note: Since I live in Maryland next to large cities, it is doubtful that I can put up a telescope in my backyard to look for these with all the light pollution and weather problems. I already have an 8 inch cassegrain, obviously not helpful in my ultimate persuit. Thus I am hooked into the iTelescope network and plan to use the New Mexico site to start my journey. Eventually going to the Australia site for some southern hemisphere action. Any helpful tips are welcome.
