The Lhires Lite spectroscope is based on our own experience in scientifical animation. It has been specifically designed to be easy to use, robust, and without danger. It attaches directly on a photographic tripod (Kodak standard).
Lhires Lite is specially well adapted for the public. Show them the solar spectrum at his best: thousands lines are visible!
High resolution solar spectrum
Show your public the solar spectrum like they have never seen. Sodium doublet is well split with forest of lines everywhere. Explain how the professional astronomers use the same technic to measure stellar composition, temperature, pressure...
A narrow split
Lhires Lite slit is a center piece for the quality of the spectrum obtained with the spectroscope.
Adjustable eyepiece holder
Everyone's eyes are not the same. This is why we are including an adjustable eyepiece with the Lhires Lite spectroscope. It is easy to use and well adapted for children.
A stick to point out the Sun
Like a solar clock, point the Lhires Lite toward the Sun so the shadow of the stick disapear.
A proven innovation! The Lhires Lite spectroscope does include 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.
Each Lhires Lite is delivered in its own handling case, making it easy and practical during external public outreach activites.
