Abstract

The Next Generation Transit Survey (NGTS) is a state-of-the-art photometric facility located at ESO's Paranal Observatory. NGTS is able to reach a precision of 150 ppm in 30 minutes, making it the most precise ground-based photometric system in the world. This precision has led to the discovery of a rare exoplanet in the "Neptune Desert" (NGTS-4b), the shortest-period hot Jupiter ever discovered (NGTS-10b), and the first exoplanet recovered from a TESS monotransit candidate (NGTS-11b). It has also allowed NGTS to characterise exoplanet candidates transiting very bright stars (V < 10) from the TESS mission, and to make coordinated observations in support of VLT programmes.
