Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The Paton Hawksley Star Analyser 100 is a great way to get into the fascinating world of stellar spectroscopy. It can be used with most telescopes as it fits into a standard 11/4 inch eyepiece holder. There is a vast amount of information on how to start in spectroscopy, here are a few links.

Information from Rspec Astro who sell easy to use software.
BASS software which is free and can be obtained from this group.
Using the SA100 with ISIS,  free software.

And loads more info in the spectroscopy section of SGL.

The prism is "Designed for the advanced user looking for the maximum resolution, this device centralises the spectrum on the optical axis and reduces the small amount of coma sometimes visible in the red region of spectra captured with the Star Analyser 100." (Taken from the Paton Hawksley website).

The SA100 new currently costs £104.54, the 3.8 degree prism is £48.37 and a spacing ring (required for the prism) is £9.12, giving a total of £162.03.

All items are in very good condition.

The sale is for all three items, and is £90.

Payment by bank transfer, no offers, price includes postage within UK.

Here is a spectra I took of the Wolf Rayet star WR134 with the SA100 & prism.





Thanks for looking.
