Abstract: We report on the first scientific results with the recently commissioned PUCHEROS spectrograph, mounted at the 50 cm telescope of the Pontificia Universidad Catolica near Santiago, Chile. A hitherto unknown candidate Be+sdO binary was identified, o Pup. If confirmed, it would be the fourth member of this class. Such stars have obtained their rapid rotation through binary mass transfer and now consist of a Be star and a hot subdwarf.
