To get you started with a fair amount of information have a look here Spectroscopy Links . You can access the JBAA and look at various papers published there. Maurice Gavin has plenty of info (as also has Robin Leadbeater). There are a few YouTube pieces on there too by Nytecam (M Gavin)& some good reading in recent books by Ken Harrison ( Published by Springer).There are several Yahoo Groups on the topic too .Hope this helps

Hi Peter,A starting point for ideas might be the spectroscopy section of my website herewww.threehillsobservatory.co.uk/astro/spectroscopy.htmThere are links to most of the other places where spectroscopy is discussed there tooFor self build ideas and everything else you could possibly want to know about amateur spectroscopy Christian Buil's site is definitely worth a visithttp://www.astrosurf.com/buil/and for a wider overview of what scientific work amateurs are doing in this area currently the ARAS website and the associated forum are worth looking athttp://www.astrosurf.com/aras/ CheersRobin
