In1998 the EXPORTteam monitored microlensing event lightcurves using a CCD camera on the IAC 0.8m telescope on Tenerife to evaluate the prospect of using northern telescopes to find microlens anomalies that reveal planets orbiting the lens stars. The high airmass and more limited time available for observation of Galactic Bulge sources makes a northern site less favourable for microlensing planet searches. However, there a potentially a large number of northern 1m class telescopes that cound devote a few hours per night to monitor ongoing microlensing planet searches. Our IAC observations indicate that accuracies sufficient to detect planets can be achieved despite the higher airmass.
