Spectroscopy workshop at OHP

Every year, a spectroscopy workshop is held at the site of the Observatoire de Haute Provence, where around 50 spectroscopists, beginners and experts, meet for a workshop with lectures during th day and observing during the night (www.shelyak.com/ohp-spectro-star-party-2019). I used this opportunity to record meteor spectra in a clear sky and present the method to other spectroscopists.

I captured a nice perseid in the night of aug. 3rd, with a Watec 902H2 ultimate, equipped with a 600 l/mm grating:

The analysis of the spectrum was done with Python, as described in meteor spectra analysed with python.

Have a look also at my other posts on this website, e.g.:
or look at my recent presentation about meteor spectroscopy at the Salzburg VEGA conference earlier this year:

Greetings to all participants of the OHP star party!

ready for observation!
