Paper Abstract

A network of three longitudinally-spaced robotic imaging telescopes is described. So far planets have been found only around bright stars (m < 1Om). Employment of the network and the photometric method for the detection of extrasolar planets will lead to the discovery of planets around stars of much fainter magnitudes (m < 19m).
