Abstract: We present follow-up observations of some promising candidates for transiting extra-solar planets, originally found by the Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment (OGLE) through time series photometry. Our follow-up UVES spectroscopy at high spectral resolution aims at measuring the radial velocity variations in the systems to determine the masses of the transit candidates. Two of them, OGLE-TR-9 and OGLE-TR-40, turn out to be low mass stellar companions. For OGLE-TR-10 our spectroscopic observations remain inconclusive.
