New planetary and eclipsing binary candidates from campaigns 1-6 of the K2 mission.


Abstract (from CDS):

Context. With only two functional reaction wheels, Kepler cannot maintain stable pointing at its original target field and has entered a new mode of observation called K2.
Aims. We describe a new pipeline to reduce K2 pixel files into light curves that are later searched for transit like features.
Methods. Our method is based on many years of experience in planet hunting for the CoRoT mission. Owing to the unstable pointing, K2 light curves present systematics that are correlated with the target position in the charge coupled device (CCD). Therefore, our pipeline also includes a decorrelation of this systematic noise. Our pipeline is optimised for bright stars for which spectroscopic follow-up is possible. We achieve a maximum precision on 6 hours of 6ppm. The decorrelated light curves are searched for transits with an adapted version of the CoRoT alarm pipeline.
Results. We present 172 planetary candidates and 327 eclipsing binary candidates from campaigns 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 of K2. Both the planetary candidates and eclipsing binary candidates lists are made public to promote follow-up studies. The light curves will also be available to the community.
