ADC_Keywords: Stars, double and multiple ; Planets ; Photometry Keywords: planets and satellites: fundamental parameters - planetary systems - stars: individual: WASP-7 Abstract: We present the first high-precision photometry of the transiting extrasolar planetary system WASP-7, obtained using telescope defocussing techniques and reaching a scatter of 0.68mmag per point. We find that the transit depth is greater and that the host star is more evolved than previously thought. The planet has a significantly larger radius and much lower density and surface gravity than previous measurements showed. Based on the revised properties it is no longer an outlier in planetary mass-radius and period-gravity diagrams. We obtain a more precise transit ephemeris for the WASP-7 system. Description: A light curve of one transit of the extrasolar planetary system WASP-7 is presented. The data were obtained using the Danish 1.5m telescope and DFOSC camera at ESO La Silla in 2010, with substantial telescope defocussing in order to improve the photometric precision of the observations. A Johnson I filter and exposure times of 60s were used.
