This data set set contains calibrated images of eight known transiting extrasolar planetary systems (hot Jupiters) acquired by the Deep Impact High Resolution Visible CCD during the EPOCh phase of the EPOXI mission. From 22 January through 31 August 2008 the HRIV CCD collected over 172,000 usable, photometric-quality visible light images of these transiting planet systems: HAT-P-4, HAT-P-7, GJ 436, TrES-2, TrES-3, XO-2, XO-3, and WASP-3. Time series of continuous 50-second integrations were used with the clear filter (#6) to observe each system for about three weeks, typically covering five or more transits as well as secondary eclipses. An exception was XO-3 which was only observed briefly due to the spacecraft entering safe mode. The transiting planet systems were observed in the integrated light of the planet and star; no spatially resolved image of the planet was possible.
