A near-infrared photometer based on an InGaAs PIN photodiode and the filter set recommended by Infrared Working Group (IRWG) have been designed and built. It is mounted on the 1-m Carl–Zeiss telescope at the Vainu Bappu Observatory (VBO) in Kavalur, India. The main science goal is to observe bright sources (<5 magnitude) in the iZ, iJ and iH photometric bands. A discussion of the instrument and on-telescope performance during first-light tests are presented in this paper.

Continuous Article Publishing mode
Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
