I’m new to this forum. I would like to know whether we can get the exact diameter of exoplanet using the Panoptes Telescope. How can we find the diameter of exoplanet using PANOPTES Telescope?

# Exact Diameter of Exoplanet

We can infer the planet diameter from the fraction of starlight missing during the transit. For example, if the star flux dims by 1%, this means the planet disk covers 1% of the area of the stellar disk, so the planet diameter is 10% of the star diameter.
