Abstract

The automatic photometric pipeline provides a real time images reduction and directly the light curves of object in the field within the RATS project (RAdial Velocities Transit Search). The light curves themselves will be analyzed in order to catch light dimming due to a transit. For this purpose, the algorithm needs as input files a list of fits images taken at Schmidt Telescope of Asiago (INAF, Italy), a reference master list of stars and three files with the optional parameters for the DAOPHOT photometry package (Stetson 1987, PASP, 99, 191). The master list is previously obtained from a photometric characterization of the field (for more details: http://www.rats.it and Claudi et al. 2006, in Observatoire de Haute Provence Colloquium, Tenth Anniversary of 51 Peg-b: Status of and prospects for hot Jupiter studies, 22-25 August 2005, eds. Arnold, L., Bouchy, F. and Moutou, C., 350).
