STELLA Robotic Observatory
STELLA, short for STELLar Activity are two fully robotic, 1.2m telescope at Izana Observatory located in Tenerife, Spain. They uniquely combine a high-resolution spectrograph, SES and a wide-field imager, WiFSIP. STELLA is a long-term project for observing and monitoring activity tracers on cool stars with two robotic telescopes.
Plans for a third, 2m-class telescope STELLA-III are currently under discussion.

All data remains within the project's PIs. Sporadically we publish some images in the public domain (see gallery).
Main contact address is:
PI of STELLA is K. Strassmeier.
M. Weber is responsible for all hardware issues of both telescopes and instruments and the point of contact for the SES data reduction pipeline.
T. Granzer is responsible for software issues and the WiFSIP data reduction pipeline.
The entire team is here.
