Abstract: High-precision and continuous satellite photometry of the MOST satellite (Microvariability and Oscillations of STars) lead to the detection of 16 new eclipsing binaries. Part of them have photometric amplitudes smaller than 0.1 mag and at the same time orbital periods longer than 10 days making them virtually inaccessible by the ground-based observations. Several known eclipsing binaries were also observed with unprecedented photometric precision leading to the determination of precise geometric elements and to detection of low-amplitude pulsations possibly caused by dynamical tides.
