Planetary system

In 2004 the extrasolar planet TrES-1 was found to be orbiting this star by the Trans-Atlantic Exoplanet Survey using the transit method. The planet was detected crossing its parent star using a small 4-inch diameter telescope. The discovery was confirmed by the Keck Observatory using the radial velocity method, allowing its mass to be determined [2].
