We present infrared Hand K-band spectra of a companion candidate 3 ′′ north of the young star GSC 08047-00232, a probable member of the nearby young Horologium association. From previously obtained JHK-band colors and the magnitude difference between primary and companion candidate, the latter could well be substellar (Neuhäuser et al. 2003) with the spectral type being roughly M7-L9 from the JHK colors (Chauvin et al. 2003). With the Hand K-band spectra now obtained with ISAAC at the VLT, the… CONTINUE READING
