Subject covered include planning an observing session, calibrating images, processing images and producing a light curve. With practice an exoplanet “light curve” can be produced that exhibits a precision of about 0.002 magnitude per 2-minute average, which is more than adequate for showing the parent star’s fade of typically 0.020 magnitude lasting 2 or 3 hours. During the past year there have been over 300 light curve observations submitted to the Amateur Exoplanet Archive (AXA), which serves as a data source for professionals studying exoplanet systems.
