Hi all:

Could someone point me to reference material to help me to understand how to design a program to study exoplanets, both in terms of equipment and data reduction techniques, software, etc.?

Thanks in advance,

Gary

Gary:

A great starting point is Bruce Gary's treatise on "Exoplanet observing for amateurs".

You can also buy the book off Amazon (for Kindle)
