   1SWASP (Super Wide Angle Search for Planets) Write:<<1SWASP JHHMMSS.ss+DDMMSS.s>> N: about 100000000 Object:V*  (SIMBAD class: Variable* = Variable Star) Note:The SuperWASP survey is an unfiltered wide-field photometric variability survey with the primary goal of detecting exoplanetary transit candidates. With installations in each hemisphere, the goal is to conduct a variability survey of the entire sky. The catalogue designations refer to locations on the sky at which photometry has been secured in a 48 arcsec-radius aperture centred on either a known stellar source listed in the USNO B-1.0 catalogue, with R2 magnitude < 15, or a transient point source detected at 4 sigma or greater, for which no bright USNO-B1.0 counterpart is listed.
