We present preliminary single ﬁeld results on a search for transiting extrasolar planets with the LAIWO wide ﬁeld optical CCD camera, attached to the 1-m telescope at the Wise Observatory. With a 3 min integration time, the system achieved a few mmag precision for the brightest stars in a ﬁeld of view of one square degree. We detect several periodic variables and a few transit-like events. The promising candidates will be followed-up in the near future.
