This Month's issue

Postby s_hawkins » Thu Jan 18, 2007 4:56 pm

Hello all, today i received my February issue of the sky at night. It is jam-packed full of great articles, most of which i will thouroughly read later on. I think i need to be a bit careful, this month's 'How to...' section is about building a spectroscope. If i remember correctly, i did say ages ago that this idea would be a gooden for a 'how to...' and that the Solar episode featuring Pete's (starman) homemade spectroscope was a fab idea. Someone must have picked up on my post or something...[:D]

Regards,

Sam

Well the moderators do read the Forum to pick up on ideas to put in the magazine. It's another good reason to take part in the forum!

Yes it is great to see spectroscopy getting a higher profile. I learned a lot from Maurice Gavin when I got started with spectroscopy.
This is where I record what I am up to in this area

Great website Robin! - I seem to have a build-up of interest in the subject of spectroscopy and after constructing a similar version to the one featured in next month's issue, i might try to build a more permanent version using a grating.

I find the possibilities amazing when it comes to spectroscopy!
