dc.description.abstract Using Ball State University’s on-campus 20-inch telescope and a differential photometric data pipeline, we have observed two fields near the galactic mid-plane. We have collected photometric data in the near-infrared over the course of two years to look for variability. In the process we have discovered new variable stars as well as exoplanet candidates via the photometric transit method. en_US
