Abstract

We present space-based photometry of the transiting exoplanetary system HD 209458 obtained with the Microvariablity and Oscillations of Stars (MOST) satellite, spanning 14 days and covering 4 transits and 4 secondary eclipses. The HD 209458 photometry was obtained in MOST s lower precision direct imaging mode, which is used for targets in the brightness range 6.5≥ V≥ 13. We describe the photometric reduction techniques for this mode of observing, in particular the corrections for stray earthshine. We ...
