Could someone check Skyview please?

SPH10086450 KID 2585569 looks like a possible planet candidate. Transit features in Q1.0 d17, Q2.3 d115 and Q3.1 d145.75 are the most obvious. There are other interesting features closer in. I checked the NEA and whilst the phased curve looks good to me I am at the limits of my current capabilities and would appreciate some help. I don't know how to check Skyview for possible contamination. Could anyone please help?

Kianjin did a great job explaining how anyone can get skyviews here:

http://talk.planethunters.org/discussions/DPH1003dcx

p.s. found some problems using Internet Explorer browser for this however. try Firefox, Opera, etc. instead.

Thanks very much ajamyajax. Would you mind having a quick look at this light curve if you get a chance please? I would value your opinion very much so that I can see if I am chasing shadows. I will try to follow Kian's instructions, but I am a rank amateur non-academic and even if I get to the right spots probably couldn't interpret the results. I am trying to be more self sufficient and learning as fast as I can, but seem to be at my limit here.

Thanks very much indeed for the helpful link. Regards, Mike.

Here is the skyview for APH10086450

It looks like a case of possible contamination as there are other stars in close range (#2 and #3).

Those stars has Kepler ID's 2585555 and 2585564, respectively. But unfortunately they are not targetted by the Kepler and no data is available.

Jiipie: Thanks for checking this! Mike: I just looked also and it does appear to be a crowded field... And none of the first dozen neighbor KID's are in the NEA which doesn't help either. Sorry about that. But we tried...

p.s. you can pay us back by learning how to do this yourself eventually... This part is not that difficult really. So have no fear. :)) I'm sure you will learn more and more by practice just like the rest of us have.

I believe the strong feature around d115 in APH23086450 is actually the #fp16 glitch and Q3.1 is likewise instrument related.

I'm really very grateful to you. I am certainly hooked! If I ever do progress it will be because people like you helped and encouraged me when I needed it. The payback comes when I am able to help new users who ask questions like this...:-)

Thanks gang!

Edit: NHB, does the fp16 glitch refer to the fact that I am seeing things that aren't there and need to visit the optician??
