Overview of the mini-SONG project



Plan to setup on the 4 SONG sites in Northern Hemisphere
Consists of a 50-cm twin-telescope at each site
Scientific goals:
 General multi-color survey of open clusters
Long term multi-color time-domain observations of selected cluster
fields
Superiority:






Global network groups
Long time baseline
High resolutions in frequency space
Multi-color photometry
