Abstract: The Pan-Planets project is a search for transiting extra-solar Jupiter-like planets with the 1.8m PanSTARRS telescope and its wide field camera of 7 square degrees, at the Lure Observatory in Haleakala, Maui, Hawaii. Three transit surveys campaigns are expected to be performed, with the first two over the course of the PanSTARRS mission, and the third at the end of the mission. Each transit survey campaign is to be scheduled for 120 hours per year, covering three adjacent fields or 21 square degrees per campaign with a time sampling of 6 min. per field or better (depending on the instrument performance). It is expected to reach relative photometric accuracies of 0.5-1%, with the goal of finding more than 100 Very Hot to Hot Jupiters.
