Abstract: Thüringer Landessternwarte Tautenburg (TLS) has started to operate a small dedicated telescope — the Tautenburg Exoplanet Search Telescope (TEST) — searching for transits of extrasolar planets in photometric time series observations. In a joint effort with the Berlin Exoplanet Search Telescope (BEST) operated by the Institut für Planetenforschung of the “Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR)” at the Observatoire de Haute-Provence (OHP), France, two observing sites are used to optimise transit search. Here, we give a short overview of these systems and the data analysis. We describe a software pipeline that we have set up to identify transit events of extrasolar planets and variable stars in time series data from these and other telescopes, and report on some initial results.
