The SAMI Galaxy Survey: Instrument specification and target selection
The SAMI Galaxy Survey will observe 3400 galaxies with the Sydney-AAO Multi- object Integral-field spectrograph (SAMI) on the Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) in a 3-year survey which began in 2013.Expand

A SUPER-EARTH AND TWO NEPTUNES ORBITING THE NEARBY SUN-LIKE STAR 61 VIRGINIS
We present precision radial velocity data that reveal a multiple exoplanet system orbiting the bright nearby G5V star 61 Virginis. Our 4.6 years of combined Keck/HIRES and Anglo-Australian TelescopeExpand

A planetary system around the nearby M dwarf GJ 667C with at least one super-earth in its habitable zone
We re-analyze 4 years of HARPS spectra of the nearby M1.5 dwarf GJ 667C available through the European Southern Observatory public archive. The new radial velocity (RV) measurements were obtainedExpand

THE SHORTEST PERIOD sdB PLUS WHITE DWARF BINARY CD–30 11223 (GALEX J1411–3053)*
We report on the discovery of the shortest period binary comprising a hot subdwarf star (CD-30 11223, GALEX J1411-3053) and a massive unseen companion. Photometric data from the All Sky AutomatedExpand

Signals embedded in the radial velocity noise - Periodic variations in the τ Ceti velocities
Context. The abilities of radial velocity exoplanet surveys to detect the lowest-mass extra-solar planets are currently limited by a combination of instrument precision, lack of data, and 'jitter'.Expand

A JUPITER-LIKE PLANET ORBITING THE NEARBY M DWARF GJ 832*
Precision Doppler velocity measurements from the Anglo-Australian Telescope reveal a planet with a 9.4 ± 0.4 year period orbiting the M1.5 dwarf GJ 832. Within measurement uncertainty the orbit isExpand
