VizieR Online Data Catalog: HARPS and HARPS-N 55 Cnc radial velocities (Lopez-Morales+, 2014)

Abstract : Shortly after the detection of 55 Cnc e's transit was announced, we requested four spectroscopic time series on HARPS (Prog. ID 288.C-5010; PI: Triaud) as Director Discretionary Time. HARPS is installed on the 3.6 m telescope at the European Southern Observatory on La Silla, Chile (Mayor et al. 2003Msngr.114...20M). The position of 55 Cnc in the sky-RA(J2000)=08:52:35.81, DE(J2000)=+28:10:50.95-is low as seen from La Silla. The target remains at a zenith distance of z<2 for only ~2.5 hr per night, with a transit duration of about 1.5 hr having to fit within this tight window. This constraint on the airmass, essential to obtain precise radial velocities (RVs), is set by the instrumental atmospheric dispersion corrector. We used the ephemeris by Gillon et al. (2012, J/A+A/539/A28), then at an advanced stage of preparation, to schedule our observations. In total, we gathered 179 spectra on the nights starting on 2012 January 27, 2012 February 13, 2012 February 27, and 2012 March 15 UT.
