Variable Star Research using SuperWASP

The Wide Angle Search for Planets (WASP) is an international consortium of several academic organisations primarily performing an ultra-wide angle search for exoplanets using transit photometry. Two continuously operating observatories in the Canary Islands and South Africa cover the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, and simultaneously monitor many millions of stars at magnitudes 8 to 15 using eight wide-angle cameras.
