Abstract

We present the observing strategy, the method of analysis and first results from the WASP0-project, with data taken at the Kryonerion Astronomical Station of the National Observatory of Athens, in 2002. WASP0 (Wide Angle Search for Planets) is a project aiming to discover extrasolar planets using the transit method. Besides extrasolar planets, the project is suitable for detecting new variable stars, novae, asteroids, etc. For the reduction we used the 'SuperWASP pipeline' developed for this specific purpose by the University of St. Andrews and Queens University, UK, with in situ modifications for our computing facilities.
