The WASP project and the superWASP cameras
ABSTRACT The SuperWASP cameras are wide‐field imaging systems at the Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands, and at the Sutherland Station of theExpand
Cats and dogs, hair and a hero: A quintet of new milky way companions
We present five new satellites of the Milky Way discovered in Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) imaging data, four of which were followed-up with either the Subaru or the Isaac Newton Telescopes. TheyExpand
The UKIRT wide field camera ZYJHK photometric system: calibration from 2MASS
In this paper, we describe the photometric calibration of data taken with the near-infrared Wide Field Camera (WFCAM) on the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope (UKIRT). The broad-band ZYJHK data areExpand
The UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey Early Data Release
This paper defines the UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey (UKIDSS) Early Data Release (EDR). UKIDSS is a set of five large near-infrared surveys being undertaken with the United Kingdom InfraredExpand
Direct Detection of Galactic Halo Dark Matter
A survey to find faint, cool white dwarfs with large space velocities, indicative of their membership in the galaxy's spherical halo component reveals a substantial, directly observed population of oldwhite dwarfs, too faint to be seen in previous surveys, and represents a direct detection of galactic halo dark matter.

A kilonova as the electromagnetic counterpart to a gravitational-wave source
Observations and physical modelling of a rapidly fading electromagnetic transient in the galaxy NGC 4993, which is spatially coincident with GW170817, indicate that neutron-star mergers produce gravitational waves and radioactively powered kilonovae, and are a nucleosynthetic source of the r-process elements.

A Faint New Milky Way Satellite in Bootes
We announce the discovery of a new satellite of the Milky Way in the constellation of Bootes at a distance of ~60 kpc. It was found in a systematic search for stellar overdensities in the northExpand
WASP-1b and WASP-2b: Two new transiting exoplanets detected with SuperWASP and SOPHIE
Using the newly commissioned radial-velocity spectrograph SOPHIE at the Observatoire de Haute-Provence, it is found that WasP-1b and WASP-2b exhibit reflex orbital radial-VELocity variations with amplitudes characteristic of planetary-mass companions and in-phase with the photometric orbits. Expand
