Title: Amateur Spectroscopy
Url: http://amateurspectroscopy.com/
Publisher: Amateur Spectroscopy
Description: The main objective of this website is to teach the amateur astronomer how to perform spectroscopy. The first part of the website is dedicated to establishing a theoretical foundation, in which the process of spectroscopy is explained: how spectral lines are created, the operation of a spectroscope, and grating spectroscopy. Later on, all these concepts are applied to astronomy, specifically to stars. Using spectroscopy, astronomers are able to identify the composition of stars, which leads to a classification catalog dependent on the spectral lines observed. Several spectra, from different objects like supernovae and stars are presented for the user to observe, along with distinctive spectral lines from some chemical elements. Finally, this website motivates amateurs by suggesting several project ideas along with a list of references and instrument suppliers.
