Abstract: We present preliminary results on a single field observed by WHAT, a small-aperture short focal length automated telescope with an 8.2° × 8.2° deg field of view, located at the Wise Observatory. The system is similar to the members of HATNet ( and is aimed at searching for transiting extrasolar planets and variable objects. With 5 min integration time, the telescope achieved a precision of a few mmag for the brightest objects. We detect variables with amplitudes less than 0.01 mag. All 152 periodic variables are presented at
