On High-Contrast Characterization of Nearby, Short-Period Exoplanets with Giant Segmented-Mirror Telescopes
http://arxiv.org/abs/1301.5884

Several planets already discovered by radial velocity surveys will be accessible to near-infrared high-contrast GSMT observations, including the low-mass planets alpha Cen Bb and (depending on their albedos) GJ 139c and d, GJ 876b and c, and tau Cet b, c, and d; tau Cet f would be amenable to thermal infrared characterization.

GJ 139 = 82 Eri

Oddly enough, I was wondering that this week...this could be well worth following.

Example telescopes being the 30 Metre Telescope? Giant Magellan Telescope? E-ELT? Or should I be thinking of something else?
