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.
For all users. Follow this
link for help about the use of the service. You can
also use directly the shortcuts below.
For autorized users only. Here,
you will find useful information on how to manipulate, deploy and
update the database.
