This paper employs a simple model, considering just geometry and linear or quadratic limb darkening, to fit Kepler transit data via a Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methodology for Kepler-1b, 5b, 8b, 12b, 77b, 428b, 491b, 699b, 706b, and 730b. Additional fits were made of the systems using the more sophisticated modeller Winfitter, which gives results in general agreement with the simpler model... Analysis of data with longer integration times showed biasing of the derived parameters, as expected from the literature,} leading to larger estimates for radii and reducing estimates of the system inclination. read more
