ARIEL ExoClock pro-am project

The Exoplanet Division is participating in a pro-am project supporting the ARIEL space mission with ground-based exoplanet observations. This is a great opportunity to get started in exoplanet transit observations and make a significant contribution to the mission. The objective of this tutorial is to provide help in installing the Python/HOPS software, imaging and generating transit light-curves.
