Observing Extra-Solar Planets Using Andor Luca EMCCD Camera

This video which has been produced from data taken at Blackrock Castle Observatory, Cork, Ireland, shows the observation of extra-solar planets from the ground using Andor low-cost Luca EMCCD camera.

It is possible to remove atmospheric-induced noise using a combination of an Andor Luca EMCCD and fast imaging. When the effects of atmospheric turbulence have been considerably reduced, the extra-solar planets are clearly observed.
