Remarks

Alias CD-30 1812

22 Feb 2013: The stellar parameters are using a main-sequence mass-radius constraint on the parent star. Without this constraint, the stellar parameters are slightly different (Smalley et al. 2012)

Remarks

05 Mar 2014: The planet parameters are given for WASP-79 as a main sequence star. Addison et al. (2014) give also an alternate set of parameters assuming that it is an evolved star.
