Abstract

Two of the midtransit times that were given in Table 3 of Winn et al. 2007 (AJ, 134, 1707-1712) are incorrect. The first entry was incorrect because a trend in the out-of-transit flux had not been removed as described in the text. The sixth entry gave an incorrect epoch, and a midtransit time that was too small by one orbital period, because of a rounding error in the computer code that generated the table. The corrected times are given below in a revised version of Table 3. With these revisions, the ephemeris parameters given in the text following Equation (4) are changed slightly, to Tc (0) = 2453997.79252(32) (HJD) and P = 4.46543(13) days, where the numbers in parentheses indicate the 1σ uncertainty in the last two digits. We note that a more precise ephemeris has been calculated by Johnson et al. (2008), based on a combination of the data presented here and more recent transit observations.
