Abstract
The detector "Pi of the Sky" searches for optical flashes in the sky. Its main goal is to look for optical afterglows associated with gamma ray bursts (GRB), but it also has a capability to detect other phenomena like variable stars. Collected data passes through a specially designed software pipeline. At last. a collection of stars' light curves is obtained and put into a database. At this level it is possible to study stars and analyse their variability. Example results are presented.
