Abstract / Description:We discuss the current status of our precision radial velocity surveys at the Hobby-Eberly Telescope (HET) and 2.7 m telescope at McDonald Observatory, as well as at the ESO/VLT in the southern hemisphere. With the HET we have just detected a planetary system, consisting of 2 Jovian-type planets, around a very metal-poor star ([Fe/H] = -0.68). Furthermore, using the VLT data for Barnard's star and Proxima Cen we will demonstrate that our current sensitivity for low-mass planets around mid M dwarfs (M4-M5V) approaches 1 Earth mass.
