Lhires Lite is your ideal public outreach spectroscope. Simple to use, robust and safe: Lhires Lite will add a colored touch to your public outreach!

 

Lhires Lite is provided in a custom-foamed carrying case with an eyepiece of 31.75 mm, a user guide and some verniers scales set.

The Lhires Lite spectroscope is based on our own experience in scientifical animation. It has been specifically designed to be easy to use, robust, and without danger. It attaches directly on a photographic tripod (Kodak standard).

 

Public Outreach

Lhires Lite is specially well adapted for the public. Show them the solar spectrum at his best: thousands lines are visible!

High resolution solar spectrum

Show your public the solar spectrum like they have never seen. Sodium doublet is well split with forest of lines everywhere. Explain how the professional astronomers use the same technic to measure stellar composition, temperature, pressure…

A narrow split

Lhires Lite slit is a center piece for the quality of the spectrum obtained with the spectroscope.

Adjustable eyepiece holder

Everyone’s eyes are not the same. This is why we are including an adjustable eyepiece with the Lhires Lite spectroscope. It is easy to use and well adapted for children.

A stick to point out the Sun

Like a solar clock, point the Lhires Lite toward the Sun so the shadow of the stick disapear.

Interchangeable scales

A proven innovation!
The Lhires Lite spectroscope does include several scale you can use to help identifying the lines either in the solar spectrum or spectral lamp. You can also create your own or use a blank paper for the students to draw the spectrum they see and compare with reference scales.

Handling case

Each Lhires Lite is delivered in its own handling case, making it easy and practical during external public outreach activites.
