MASCARA: the multi-site all-sky CAmeRA: concept and first results

Lesage, Spronck, Stuik, Pollacco, Snellen

SPIE Proceedings, July 1, 2014

MASCARA, the Multi-site All-Sky CAmeRA, will consist of several fully-automated stations distributed across the globe. Its goal is to find exoplanets transiting the brightest stars, in the mV = 4 to 8 magnitude range, currently probed neither by space- nor by ground-based surveys. The nearby transiting planet systems that MASCARA is ...

MASCARA: opto-mechanical design and integration

Spronck, Lesage, Stuik

SPIE Proceedings, July 1, 2014

MASCARA, the Multi-site All-Sky CAmeRA, consists of several fully-automated stations. Its goal is to find exoplanets transiting the brightest stars, in the mV = 4 to 8 magnitude range. Each station contains five wide- angle cameras monitoring the near-entire sky at each location. The five cameras are located in a temperature- ...

Ground-based search for the brightest transiting planets with the Multi-site All-Sky CAmeRA: MASCARA

Snellen, Stuik, Navarro, De Mooij, ter Horst, LePoole

SPIE Proceedings, Sept. 1, 2012

The Multi-site All-sky CAmeRA MASCARA is an instrument concept consisting of several stations across the globe, with each station containing a battery of low-cost cameras to monitor the near-entire sky at each location. Once all stations have been installed, MASCARA will be able to provide a nearly 24-hr coverage of ...
