Differential photometry was conducted on the star GSC 3281-0800, a known host to exoplanet HAT-P-32b, using analysis software AstroImageJ. Measurements were plotted from a series of images taken during the transit, via ADU count given from an earth-based digital CCD camera. A definite light curve was established and more details about the properties of this exoplanet were discovered.
