Abstract
The Pi of the Sky experiment, located at Las Campanas Observatory in Chile, searches for rapidly changing optical objects such as optical counterparts of Gamma Ray Bursts. The system consists of two CCD cameras placed on parallactic mount and operated by a PC equipped with dedicated software. The data acquired is reduced and essentially only the brightness of stars is stored in the database. A web interface for the star databases offers easy and quick access to the experiment's data and to other star catalogs that are also stored in our databases.
