STRESS - STEREO TRansiting Exoplanet and Stellar Survey
The Heliospheric Imager (HI) instruments on board the two STEREO (Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory) spacecraft provides an excellent opportunity for space based stellar photometry. The HI instruments provide a wide area coverage (20 20 for the two HI-1 instruments and 70 70 for the two HI-2 instruments) and long continuous periods of observations (20 days and 70 days respectively). Using HI-1A which has a pass band of 6500 to 7500 and a cadence of 40 minutes, we have gathered photometric information for more than a million stars brighter than 12th magnitude for a period of two years. Here we present some early results from this study on a range of variable stars and the future prospects for the data.


Plan to use images of the solar observatory SDO (Solar Dynamics Observatory) too to search for transit exoplanets?

SDO isn't taking the same sort of imagery as the instruments mentioned in that article.

They've reached science orbit and are testing instruments now. Encouraging to see that they're posting on weekends...

Heard at the UK Space Conference, a STEREO scientists wouldn't comment directly about SDO when asked if he had seen pictures yet - but he said "I'm smiling"

From SDO's Twitter updates:

"First Light press conference scheduled for April 21st! Calibration tests so far are amazing. Updates here: http://ow.ly/1uKgs "

Not building these images up at all, are they? laugh.gif
