A smaller radius for the transiting exoplanet WASP-10b.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present the photometry of WASP-10 during a transit of its short-period Jovian planet. We employed the novel point-spread function shaping capabilities of the Orthogonal Parallel Transfer Imaging Camera mounted on the UH 2.2 m telescope to achieve a photometric precision of 4.7x10–4 per 1.3 minute sample. With this new light curve, in conjunction with stellar evolutionary models, we improve on existing measurements of the planetary, stellar, and orbital parameters. We find a stellar radius R{*}= 0.698±0.012 R and a planetary radius RP= 1.080±0.020 RJup. The quoted errors do not include any possible systematic errors in the stellar evolutionary models. Our measurement improves the precision of the planet's radius by a factor of 4, and revises the previous estimate downward by 16% (2.5σ, where σ is the quadrature sum of the respective confidence limits). Our measured radius of WASP-10b is consistent with previously published theoretical radii for irradiated Jovian planets.
