Abstract An Imaging Polarimeter has been fabricated for use with liquid-N2 cooled CCD camera and is designed to suit 104-cm Sampurnanand telescopewith an f/13 focus at Aryabhatta Research Institute of Observational Sciences(ARIES), Naini Tal. The instrument measures the linear polarisation in broadB, V and R band and has a field of view ∼ 2´ × 2´ . We are presenting here someobservations regarding the polarisation of some polarised as well as unpolarisedstars with a view to show the performance of our polarimeter.
