The Hungarian-made Automated Telescope Network-South (HATSouth) Exoplanet Survey is a network of 6 astrograph telescope systems designed to detect transiting exoplanets in orbit around relatively bright stars visible from the Southern hemisphere. The telescopes are distributed over three continents; South America, Africa, and Australia. Since first light in 2009, we have discovered 17 exoplanets to date. This website describes the project, and presents all data used to detect and characterize the transiting exoplanets discovered by the HATSouth survey. Use the links on the sidebar to learn more.
