In our studies of activity in pre-main sequence Herbig Ae/Be stars we are mainly interested in searching rotational modulation of line profile. If the period of star rotation is of the order of one or two days, the data collected from a single site is insufficient. This led us to start correlated observations from two or three sites spread as much as possible in longitude. Our first bi-site observations started in 1982 on AB Aur from two observatories located 11 hours apart.: CFHT in Hawaï and OHP in France. To achieve a high flexibility and to gain access to telescopes without attached spectrographs. We built an instrument that is mobile and specially designed for line profile studies.
