Topic: Building and Using a Spectrometer.
Our speaker for November is Clark Yeager.
Spectrographs are an essential tool in astronomy, and are found most often in the capable hands of the scientists studying a wide range of phenomena. But did you know that the amateur astronom- ical community also employs these instruments in the pursuit of expanding our understanding of the cosmos?
Our own LAS member Clarke Yeager will share his experience building and using a spectrograph at the November LAS meeting. Clarke constructed his instrument using his 3D printer, and then tested and recorded the spectrum of many of the filters used for imaging, as well as various light sources found in our daily lives.
The meeting will be in class room 2 at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church located on the south side of Third Ave between Terry and Pratt.
