dc.description.abstract "NKU’s Schneider Observatory, located on campus atop Founder’s Hall, features a 14-inch Schmidt- Cassegrain telescope mounted on a German equatorial mount with computer control capabilities. The high precision of this telescope system allows us to perform differential photometry of variable objects with sufficient sensitivity to detect exoplanets. Research is continuing on developing a custom image processing pipeline, which will enable us to produce light curves with complete control over the processing techniques. In this presentation, we will discuss the preliminary data we have been able to obtain with the telescope as well as the benefits and challenges of constructing an image processing pipeline from scratch." en_US
