Spectrographs in amateur astronomy

Abstract

This paper reviews the overall principles of astronomical spectrographs and the design rules that cover low, medium, and high spectral resolution instruments. Several examples of spectrograph designs are described that are easy to build and are optimised for amateur telescopes. Results are given for each of these instruments. Despite the modest size of amateur telescopes, we show that high performance spectrographs in the hands of amateur astronomers provide access to some specialised areas where the amateur could contribute to useful astrophysical work.
