Solar-Terrestrial Environment Laboratory (STEL) has been operating various kinds of optical instruments for more than 10 years at the Tromsφ EISCAT (European Incoherent Scatter) radar site in Norway (69.6oN, 19.2oE), which is one of the state-of-art observatories at high latitudes. Five instruments are now in automatic operation regularly from October to March: (1) three-wavelength photometer (427.8 nm, 630.0 nm, and 557.7 nm), which is fixed to look along the magnetic field line, (2) digital camera for monitoring weather and aurora, (3) proton all-sky camera (486.1 nm), (4) multi-wavelength all-sky camera (557.7 nm, 630.0 nm, OH band, 589.3 nm, 572.5 nm, and 732.0 nm), and (5) Fabry-Perot interferometer (557.7 nm, 630.0 nm, and 732.0 nm). The quick looks are available on the web at www.stelab.nagoya-u.ac.jp/~eiscat/data/EISCAT.html. These instruments are programmatically operated, and they have contributed to many campaign observations with the EISCAT radars, rockets, satellites, and other ground-based instruments by adjusting the observation mode.
