Abstract

The STELLA robotic observatory is made up of two telescopes (1.2m & 0.8m), one equipped with a high resolution echelle spectrograph and a wide-field imager, the other one with a wide-field imager. The observatory is fully robotic, and its strengths are in long-term monitoring and survey programs on one side, and in observing targets of opportunity on the other side. We present examples of programs planned for routine observation starting early 2005. A more complete list of proposed science programs can be found on the STELLA homepage www.aip.de/stella.
