Summary — this page is the entry point to the ASTEP Lightcurve Database Service. The service allows users to search for lightcurves in the ASTEP database. Note that only ASTEP 400 telescope data from 2010 until 2012 is currently available.

Description —  A-STEP is a 40 cm photometric telescope installed at Concordia station on the Antarctic plateau (Dome C). It has been operated 4 years between 2010 and 2013. Informations on A-STEP can be found here.

ASTEP has a field of 1° x 1° on the sky, imaged on a 4096x4096 pixels detector. More than 50 fields were observed during the first three years of operation for periods of two weeks up to two months. Among them, 25 were observed for a research of extra-solar planet transit. 43 planet candidates were identified. The candidate list is accessible here.

You may also read the description of all fields in the database.
