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,
originated with a 512 x 768 CCD,
and as later upgraded to a 65mm aperture telescope with
a field of view of 8 degrees by 8 degrees,
with a 2k x 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 2017, 29 extra-solar planet discoveries are
