Lhires Lite is your ideal public outreach spectroscope. Simple to use, robust and safe: Lhires Lite will add a colored touch to your public outreach!
The Lhires Lite spectroscope is based on Shelyak's experience in spectroscopic equipment. It has been specifically designed to be easy to use, robust, and above all, safe. It attaches directly on a photographic tripod (1/4" standard).
Principally the Lhires Lite is best suited to observing the Solar Spectrum. Set it up on a tripod, align it to the sun using the included finder and examine our nearest stars spectrum in fine detail. You can view specific parts of the spectrum by adjusting the colour coded grating adjuster.
The Lhires Lite spectroscope includes several scale you can use to help identifying the lines either in the solar spectrum or spectral lamp. You can also create your own or use a blank paper for the students to draw the spectrum they see and compare with reference scales.
Included with the Lhires Lite is a 1.25" eyepiece and a carrying case.
