This allows the planet flux to be probed around the peak of its spectral energy distribution, which is vital for the understanding of its energy budget. The aim of the reported work is to measure the eclipse depth of the planet HAT-P-1b at 2.2micron. This planet is an interesting case, since the amount of stellar irradiation it receives falls in between that of the two best studied systems (HD209458 and HD189733), and it has been suggested to have a weak thermal inversion layer. We have used the LIRIS instrument on the William Herschel Telescope (WHT) to observe the secondary eclipse of HAT-P-1b in the Ks-band, as part of our Ground-based secondary eclipse (GROUSE) project. The observations were done in staring mode, while significantly defocusing the telescope to avoid saturation on the K=8.4 star. With an average cadence of 2.5 seconds, we collected 6520 frames during one night. Description: Ks-band time-series photometry of HAT-P-1b and a reference star observed with LIRIS on the WHT. A radius of 14 pixels was used for the aperture photometry. Also included are relevant observables as the sky background per pixel, the airmass, the rotator angle of the instrument, the exposure time, the position of the star on the chip, the Julian date (N.B.: not HJD), and the orbital phase as calculated using parameters from Johnson et al., 2008ApJ...686..649J, (P=4.4652934 and T0=2454363.946560d).
