Abstract

Indian astronomers have been using their relatively modest instruments and telescopes to contribute greatly in understanding the minor bodies of the solar system. Here we discuss some of the results from observations using Indian facilities by researchers from India and abroad. Results are discussed in imaging/photometry, polarimetry and spectroscopy from the Indian telescopes up to 2 metres in aperture. It is hoped that access to the upcoming 2-m and 4-m class telescopes and sophisticated instrumentation would greatly improve our understanding with more exciting results coming up in future. Access to 2-m and 4-m class telescopes are one of the key points of the BINA collaboration. It is expected that our understanding of the solar system bodies, particularly the minor bodies and other small objects, would be greatly enhanced in terms of statistics as well as detailed characterization of individual ones.
