DESIGNING A SPECTROGRAPH CONFIGURATION

 

As described previously, the camera-collimator angle on the Bench Spectrograph is variable for increased flexibility. Because of this extra free parameter, and because of the large number of gratings usable with the Bench Spectrograph, we provide a computer program, , to facilitate the calculation of spectrograph parameters. A sample run of the program is shown below. (See also Table 6 on page gif for some starting points.)

The only camera currently usable with the Bench Spectrograph is the Simmons camera. The Bench Spectrograph Camera is expected to come on line in early 1996.
