We present the photometry of WASP-10 during a transit of its short-period Jovian planet. We employed the novel point-spread function shaping capabilities of the Orthogonal Parallel Transfer Imaging Camera mounted on the UH 2.2 m telescope to achieve a photometric precision of 4.7 × 10−4 per 1.3 minute sample. With this new light curve, in conjunction with stellar evolutionary models, we improve on existing measurements of the planetary, stellar, and orbital parameters. We find a stellar radius… 

High-precision photometry by telescope defocussing - II. The transiting planetary system WASP-4

We present high-precision photometry of two transit events of the extrasolar planetary system WASP-5, obtained with the Danish 1.54 m telescope at ESO La Silla. In order to minimise both random and

High-precision photometry by telescope defocussing. I. The transiting planetary system WASP-5

We present high-precision photometry of three transits of the extrasolar planetary system WASP-2, obtained by defocussing the telescope, and achieving point-to-point scatters of between 0.42 and 0.73

THE TRANSIT LIGHT CURVE PROJECT. XII. SIX TRANSITS OF THE EXOPLANET XO-2b

We present photometry of six transits of the exoplanet XO-2b. By combining the light-curve analysis with theoretical isochrones to determine the stellar properties, we find the planetary radius to be

CHARACTERIZING THE COOL KOIs. II. THE M DWARF KOI-254 AND ITS HOT JUPITER

We report the confirmation and characterization of a transiting gas giant planet orbiting the M dwarf KOI-254 every 2.455239 days, which was originally discovered by the Kepler mission. We use radial

Transit timing variations in WASP-10b induced by stellar activity

The hot-Jupiter WASP-10b was reported by Maciejewski et al. to show transit timing variations (TTVs) with an amplitude of similar to 3.5 min. These authors proposed that the observed TTVs were caused

Analysis of new high-precision transit light curves of WASP-10 b: starspot occultations, small planetary radius, and high metallicity

Context. The WASP-10 planetary system is intriguing because different values of radius have been reported for its transiting exoplanet. The host star exhibits activity in terms of photometric

A PROGRADE, LOW-INCLINATION ORBIT FOR THE VERY HOT JUPITER WASP-3b

We present new spectroscopic and photometric observations of the transiting exoplanetary system WASP-3. Spectra obtained during two separate transits exhibit the Rossiter–McLaughlin (RM) effect and

Characterizing transiting extrasolar planets with narrow-band photometry and GTC/OSIRIS

We report the first extrasolar planet observations from the 10.4-m Gran Telescopio Canarias (GTC), currently the world's largest, fully steerable, single-aperture optical telescope. We used the

High-precision photometry of WASP-12 b transits

Aims. The transiting extrasolar planet WASP-12 b was found to be one of the most intensely irradiated exoplanets. It is unexpectedly bloated and is losing mass that may accrete into the host star.

WASP-36b: A NEW TRANSITING PLANET AROUND A METAL-POOR G-DWARF, AND AN INVESTIGATION INTO ANALYSES BASED ON A SINGLE TRANSIT LIGHT CURVE

TLDR
The solutions obtained by analyzing each of these light curves independently are consistent with the global fit to all the data, despite the apparent presence of correlated noise in at least two of the light curves.
