(Hungarian Automated Telescope Network)
(distributed array of telescopes to search for transients)

HATNet (Hungarian Automated Telescope Network) is a set of automated (robotic) telescopes to search for transiting planets. HAT-1, which began operation in 2001 at Konkoly Observatory in Budapest, originally with a 512 × 768 CCD and later upgraded to a 65mm aperture telescope with a field of view of 8 degrees by 8 degrees, with a 2k × 2k CCD. Currently, HATNet consists of 7 telescopes at Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory and Mauna Kea Observatories.

A further effort, HAT-South is six telescopes in Australia, Namibia, and Chile. In 2019, each site has discovered on the order of 70 extra-solar planets.
