Abstract: We present the instrumentation, the target selection method, the data analysis pipeline and the preliminary results of the Thessaloniki Research for Transits project (ThReT). ThReT is a new project aiming to discover Hot Jupiter Planets, orbiting Sun-like stars. In order to locate the promising locations for observations on the celestial sphere, we produced a sky-map of the Transit Detection Probability by employing data from the Tycho Catalogue and applying several astrophysical and empirical relationships. For the data reduction we used the ThReT pipeline, developed by our team for this specific purpose.
