A new telescope facility atop a mountain in the Himalayan range will now keep a watch on the overhead sky to identify transient or variable objects such as supernovae, gravitational lenses, space debris, and asteroids.

The telescope is commissioned at Devasthal, a hill in Uttarakhand and is the first liquid mirror telescope in the country and the largest in Asia.
