Spectrometer and spectrum tubes

Different lights produce light in different ways, and so produce very different spectra. With a spectroscope you can investigate the hidden depths of light.


We have built these as outreach kit and exhibits, with different light sources to look at including a variety of white light sources, a selection of gas discharge tubes and looking at fluorescent materials.

Pi Gazing

This involved integrating a raspberry pi and a custom PCB into a security camera box and powering it through an ethernet cable for an amateur astronomer who wrote the software.

With more than one camera it is possible to triangulate the positions and speeds of the meteors.
