Regarding its seeing properties or its photometric quality as well, the Dome C Concordia site is presented as being an intermediate solution between space and a good mountain observatory. This statement still needs somewhat further night time confirmation. If really true, as is more and more expected after the preliminary site testing campaigns (Aristidi et al. 2004; Storey et al. 2004), this opens extremely promising prospects for asteroseismology of solar-type stars, and also of any kind of star for which a continuous observation much longer than 12 hours is an important requirement.
