Abstract: STELLA is an observatory on the Spanish island of Tenerife, hosting two robotic 1.2 meter telescopes (STELLA-I and STELLA-II) that operate in fully unattended mode (see Fig. 1). From mid 2007 onwards STELLA-I will host the Wide Field Stella Imaging Photometer (WIFSIP). One of the core science projects for WIFSIP is the time series study of open clusters of different ages. This study is mainly intended for investigating the stellar properties and magnetic activity in open clusters of different ages up to 2 Gyr, but the long photometric time series obtained are also suited for finding planet transits.
