We took advantage of the multi-fiber facilities GIRAFFE and UVES/FLAMES (VLT) to perform the first large radial velocity survey using a multi-fiber spectrograph to detect planetary, brown-dwarf candidates and binary stars. We observed 816 stars during 5 consecutive half-nights. These stars were selected within one of the exoplanet fields of the space mission CoRoT. Description: In January 2005 we obtained 5 half-nights in visitor mode with the FLAMES facilities (program 074.C-0633A) attached to the 8.2m Kueyen telescope (UT2) based at the ESO-VLT. File Summary:
