What type of equipment would I need to construct a transit light curve of a planet. It doesn't have to be an exoplanet. If somebody could chuck a list that would be really helpful.
Basically you need to have the following equipment list
1.- A mechanical system track objects: you can build with 3d printer like:this prototype and/or python tracking mechanical controller
2.- A cmos/ccd sensor camera with over exposed function and color filters ,like this usb computer or use dslr camera telescope or like
3.- Automatic comparative histogram (Software), you can use python OpenCV enter link description here
I hope this links can help you, basically you need compare all histograms of same object
