Abstract: The TrES project is designed to search for exoplanetary transits using three wide-field optical telescopes of 10-cm in diameter, in three different observatories. We describe the instruments and strategies used by the team, which has been working as a network since 2003. We summarize the major findings and difficulties faced during these years, which include the discovery of two transiting planets, a pair of eclipsing M stars, and many configurations of stars that mimic the signal of transiting planets.
