a way to center and observe UV lines in spectroscope

Post by highfnum » Thu Jul 02, 2015 2:17 pm

Now that I have a spectroscope, Helios-graph
I was wondering how you guys center caH or caK lines
my eyes don't see these very well

a While back I wrote about caK eyepiece with use with my Lunt caK scope
I tried it with spectroscope a low and behold I was able to see many UV lines
including caH caK

view is green with black bands -
its not very bright but bright enough that I can see them

here is my UV eyepiece

i must be right
here is caK and caH images - raw and unprocessed
Montana - this is my first caH narrow band image - not that 5A filter stuff

again I can't thank all of you on this forum for me getting this far
with SHG

I got to start reading Wah! document on processing images!!!
Wah! , Merlin66 this type of image processing is more similar to long exposure imaging
than planetary

one question based on spectrum image above can you Identify how is K and who is H if you dont know orientation of camera?

yes they are!

it's easy to catch them with the camera : end of blue spectra!
