Context. In 1992 we began a precision radial velocity survey for planets around solar-like stars with the Coude Echelle Spectrograph and the Long Camera (CES LC) at the 1.4m telescope in La Silla (Chile) resulting in the discovery of the planet iota Hor b. We have continued the survey with the upgraded CES Very Long Camera (VLC) and the HARPS spectrographs, both at the 3.6m telescope, until 2007. Aims. In this paper we present additional radial velocities for 31 stars of the original sample… 
The Solar Twin Planet Search II. A Jupiter twin around a solar twin
Context. With high-precision radial velocity surveys reaching a su ciently long time baseline, the domain of long-period planet detections has recently opened up. The search for Jupiter-like planets
The Pan-Pacific Planet Search – VIII. Complete results and the occurrence rate of planets around low-luminosity giants
Our knowledge of the populations and occurrence rates of planets orbiting evolved intermediate-mass stars lags behind that for solar-type stars by at least a decade. Some radial velocity surveys
Radial Velocity Discovery of an Eccentric Jovian World Orbiting at 18 au
Based on two decades of radial velocity (RV) observations using Keck/HIRES and McDonald/Tull, and more recent observations using the Automated Planet Finder, we found that the nearby star HR 5183 (HD
Detection of the nearest Jupiter analogue in radial velocity and astrometry data
The presence of Jupiter is crucial to the architecture of the Solar system and models underline this to be a generic feature of planetary systems. We find the detection of the difference between
Deep Exploration of ϵ Eridani with Keck Ms-band Vortex Coronagraphy and Radial Velocities: Mass and Orbital Parameters of the Giant Exoplanet
We present the most sensitive direct imaging and radial velocity (RV) exploration of epsilon Eridani to date. epsilon Eridani is an adolescent planetary system, reminiscent of the early solar system.
CARMENES input catalogue of M dwarfs. I. Low-resolution spectroscopy with CAFOS
Context. CARMENES is a stabilised, high-resolution, double-channel spectrograph at the 3.5 m Calar Alto telescope. It is optimally designed for radial-velocity surveys of M dwarfs with potentially
Early science with the Large Millimetre Telescope: Deep LMT/AzTEC millimetre observations of ϵ Eridani and its surroundings
ǫ Eridani is a nearby, young Sun-like star that hosts a ring of cool debris analogous to the solar system’s Edgeworth-Kuiper belt. Early observations at (sub-)mm wave- lengths gave tentative
Spectroscopic Survey of Eclipsing Binaries with a Low-cost Echelle Spectrograph: Scientific Commissioning
We present scientific results obtained with a recently commissioned echelle spectrograph on the 0.5 m Solaris-1 telescope in the South African Astronomical Observatory. BACHES is a low-cost slit
TESS Asteroseismology of α Mensae: Benchmark Ages for a G7 Dwarf and Its M Dwarf Companion
Asteroseismology of bright stars has become increasingly important as a method to determine the fundamental properties (in particular ages) of stars. The Kepler Space Telescope initiated a revolution
The JCMT Gould Belt Survey: low-mass protoplanetary discs from a SCUBA-2 census of NGC 1333
NGC 1333 is a 1–2 Myr old cluster of stars in the Perseus molecular cloud. We used 850µm data from the Gould Belt Survey with SCUBA-2 on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope to measure or place limits


The planet search program at the ESO Coudé Echelle spectrometer. III. The complete Long Camera survey results
We present the complete results of the planet search program carried out at the ESO Coude Echelle Spectrometer (CES) on La Silla, using the Long Camera from Nov. 1992 to April 1998. The CES survey
The HARPS search for southern extra-solar planets. I. HD 330075 b: A new "hot Jupiter"
We report on the first extra-solar planet discovered with the brand new HARPS instrument. The planet is a typical "hot Jupiter" with m2 sini = 0.62 MJup and an orbital period of 3.39 days, but from
Spectroscopic parameters for 451 stars in the HARPS GTO planet search program - Stellar [Fe/H] and the frequency of exo-Neptunes
To understand the formation and evolution of solar-type stars in the solar neighborhood, we need to measure their stellar parameters to high accuracy. We present a catalogue of accurate stellar
