We present radial-velocity sequences acquired during three transits of the exoplanet HD 189733b and one transit of CoRoT-3b. We applied a combined Markov-chain Monte-Carlo analysis of spectroscopic and photometric data on these stars, to determine a full set of system parameters including the projected spin-orbit misalignment angle of HD 189733b to an unprecedented precision via the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect: β = 0.85 ◦ +0.32 −0.28 . This small but non-zero inclination of the planetary orbit… Expand
