Background/Interesting Fact
I am interested in CCD photometry of exoplanet transits, stars with dust disks, variable stars, and asteroids (NEOs). I have recorded and posted more than 100 LCs of known transiting exoplanets from magnitude 7.0-15.5 stars, which can be found on the Exoplanet Transit Database of the Czech Astronomical Society. I am conducting an exoplanet search using a Celestron RASA telescope which I call the Galactic Plane Exoplanet Survey (GPX). I also collected data to verify exoplanet candidates for exoplanet survey teams. I currently observe TESS exoplanet candidates for the TESS SG1 team.
