What is the added value of planethunters job compared to computerised automatic image processing and detection of transits
Could you show some examples where computer have not detected one transits and planethunters did detect it? and vice-versa?
Yes, we’ve had a planet discovery, PH1, and several other planet candidates published that were first identified by Planet Hunters. we’re also working on another set of candidates.
Thank you for your reply.
Could you explain why the automatic computer programs could not detect the transits which have been detected by planet hunters for PH1 an others ? Could you confirm the corresponding sets of data had been processed by computers but planet transits not detected by computer processings ?
And vice versa, could you show us some examples of transit detected by computers but not par planet hunter volunteers (it could help us to sharpen our detection threshold)
Hip Hip Hooray ! Mark Moffatt
