In science:

When performing the simulations, we also analyzed some OGLE stars in the SMC, and we noted different trends with respect to the above Cepheids.
The effects of blending on the light curve shape of Cepheids
Wyithe et al. (2000a) used the OGLE (and other extant datasets) to place a limit on the size of the quasar emission region, finding it to be smaller than 0 .025 η0 (99% con fidence level).
Interpreting microlensing signal in QSO 2237+0305: Stars or planets?
To date, only six planets have been discovered independently by transit searches, all of them in the field, and five of those were initially identified by OGLE (Udalski et al. 2002a, 2002b, 2002c, 2003; Alonso et al. 2004).
Planets in Stellar Clusters Extensive Search. IV. A detection of a possible transiting planet candidate in the open cluster NGC 2158
Independently, the data were reduced with the OGLE III pipeline based on the image subtraction technique (Udalski 2003; Wo´zniak 2000).
The Araucaria Project. The Distance to the Sculptor Group Galaxy NGC 55 from a Newly Discovered Abundant Cepheid Population
Two fields in the SMC which contain a huge number of uniformly distributed stars with very accurate photometry established by the OGLE team (Udalski et al. 1999) were monitored on all three nights together with our target and standard fields, and were calibrated in the same manner as the NGC 55 observations.
The Araucaria Project. The Distance to the Sculptor Group Galaxy NGC 55 from a Newly Discovered Abundant Cepheid Population
Comparison of OGLE II and our photometry shows that on average the difference in the zero points between these two photometric sets is smaller than 0.02 mag on each chip.
The Araucaria Project. The Distance to the Sculptor Group Galaxy NGC 55 from a Newly Discovered Abundant Cepheid Population
These slope values are somewhat shallower than the corresponding slopes for the LMC Cepheid sample studied by the OGLE Pro ject, but they are still consistent with the OGLE LMC PL relation slopes of -2.775 in V, -2.977 in I and -3.300 in WI (Udalski 2000) at the level of 2 σ .
The Araucaria Project. The Distance to the Sculptor Group Galaxy NGC 55 from a Newly Discovered Abundant Cepheid Population
Another possible source of systematic uncertainty on our distance result is the slopes of the fiducial LMC Cepheid PL relations which we have adopted from the extensive work of the OGLE Pro ject (Udalski 2000).
The Araucaria Project. The Distance to the Sculptor Group Galaxy NGC 55 from a Newly Discovered Abundant Cepheid Population
The localization was then refined by the Interplanetary Network and an optical transient was identified by the OGLE group .
Theoretical interpretation of GRB 011121
The photometric calibration was obtained directly for 20% of our fields by matching our star catalogues with those of the OGLE-II collaboration (Udalski et al. 2002).
R Coronae Borealis stars in the Galactic Bulge discovered by EROS-2
We also note that the OGLE calibration used a colour range of observed standard stars (Landolt system, Landolt (1992)) limited to V − I < 2 mag.
R Coronae Borealis stars in the Galactic Bulge discovered by EROS-2
Independently, data taken with the 1.3 m Warsaw telescope were reduced with the OGLE-III pipeline based on the image subtraction technique (Udalski 2003; Wo´zniak 2000).
The Araucaria Project: The Distance to the Sculptor Group Galaxy NGC 247 from Cepheid Variables Discovered in a Wide-Field
As in the previous papers in this series, we adopt the slopes of the Cepheid PL relations as given by the OGLE-II pro ject for the Cepheids in the LMC (Udalski 2000).
The Araucaria Project: The Distance to the Sculptor Group Galaxy NGC 247 from Cepheid Variables Discovered in a Wide-Field
The data define tight PL relations which are well fitted with the slopes of the corresponding LMC Cepheid PL relations adopted from the OGLE-II pro ject.
The Araucaria Project: The Distance to the Sculptor Group Galaxy NGC 247 from Cepheid Variables Discovered in a Wide-Field
Ogle et al. (2007, 2009) find that a large-subset of the local 3CR radio galaxies have extremely dominant MIR rotational H2 lines, often seen against a very weak thermal continuum.
