(distributed array of telescopes to search for transients)
HATNet (Hungarian Automated Telescope Network)
is a set of automated (robotic) telescopes to search for
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.
