Still some work to do to improve the quality of my data and techniques. In future uploads will show BAA Exoplanet Division affiliation as well as Astronomical Society of Edinburgh.

This observation showed that if you choose a saturated (>65000) comparison star (which you obviously shouldn't anyway) then it crashes the HOPS software at the photometry stage. That will get improved I'm sure.
