Paper Abstract

In October 2010 Pi of the Sky set up a new system, consisting of 4 cameras installed on a new mount, in El Arenosillo, in southern Spain. It was followed by moving the prototype system from Las Campanas Observatory (central Chile) to San Pedro de Atacama (northern Chile) in March 2011. In this paper our new sites, some details about observational conditions and first results in both observatories are described.
