Abstract

Indian Institute of Astrophysics, Koramangala 2nd Block, Bengaluru, India, 560034

The Himalayan Chandra Telescope (HCT), of the Indian Astronomical Observatory (IAO), is currently one of the most heavily subscribed telescopes in India. The telescope has been in regular use for scientific observations by national as well as international astronomical communities since May 2003. Over the past fifteen years, various observational programs have been carried out using HCT contributing to our understanding of many different aspects of stellar and Galactic astronomy. Here, a glimpse of spectroscopic studies made using HCT is provided with an aim to expand potential collaboration in the area of stellar and Galactic studies using these observing facilities. Some results from our long-term observing program on a search for CH stars from low resolution spectroscopy of high Galactic latitude objects that has given us the potential to discover objects of rare types are discussed.
