    Default What would an astronomer have to do to make spectroscopic observations of the stars?



    (1) What kind of apparatus would (s)he need?

    one of these.
    It arrived today and as a result a month of crappy weather will probably follow.

    PS:it is a LISA spectrograph from Shelyak industries.
    You also need a scope etc and some software.
    There are a few groups specifically about spectroscopy.
    Try this one.

    If you join the L200 spectroscope group in Yahoo Groups (astronomical_spectroscopy : Astronomical Spectroscopy for Amateurs)
    you might just still be able to sign up for one of the latest batch of L200 spectroscopes.

    As TCB168 said you'll need a scope, camera etc to use with
    the spectroscope.

    Another option is a Rainbow optics grating.
