PAIX, acronym for Photometer AntarctIc eXtinction, is a new photometer which has just been installed at Dome C in December 2006. PAIX consists of a 40 cm telescope equipped with a KAF-0401E CCD detector. The goal is to qualify the site of Dome C and to get continuous observations for making the best from stellar pulsation studies across the HR diagram.
