Four site testing campaigns have already been conducted at Dome C during the local summers. A very reasonable extrapolation of the knowledge acquired on the atmospheric properties shows that broad band photometry could be exploited there for developing asteroseismology of many pulsating stars, including the solar-type ones, despite their very small oscillation amplitudes. This paper focuses more specifically on the usual limiting factor in photometry which is the scintillation.
