 HD 209458 (Osiris) - star to extra-solar planet system

HD 209458 has a transiting Jupiter mass short period extrasolar planet.(HD 209458-b). Every 3.5 days, the planet produces a dimming of the star of 1.7 % that lasts for about 3 hours. The dimming has been detected by Castellano and Laughlin

A sequence of images of HD 209458 were taken through V and R filters. These were later processed in order to understand my magnitude measurement precision and indicate whether I would be likely to detect dimming in the star associated with a future transit of its planet. See Analysis of Images.
