Paper Abstract

We present a new generation SCIDAR instrument that is a fully automatically controlled device with a user-friendly interface. Alignment and observation are reduced to easy and rapid handling without the effort operating in the dome. This instrument is installed in the Jacobus Kapteyn Telescope on La Palma. We describe our progress from prototype to second generation instrument, emphasizing the design and the software for Cute SCIDAR, and show profiles from systematic monitoring using the prototype instrument on Tenerife and Cute SCIDAR on La Palma.
