About this product
Part Number: ES0021
UVEX is a cross Czerny-Turner spectrograph optimised for wavelengths from near UV (<400nm) to near IR (1µm).
We recommend using a ZWO ASI183MM Pro camera with the UVEX spectrograph.
The UVEX Spectrograph is particularly suitable for use on Ritchey-Chretien type telescopes with a diameter up to 12 or 14 inches (at F/8) such as the Stella Lyra 8" and 10" instruments.
The settings are precise and easily accessible:
- A multi-turn knob adjusts the focus of the M2 internal mirror precisely.
- An index is used to adjust the wavelength centre of the spectrum on the camera sensor. A vernier (available for each type of grating) makes it possible to precisely position the grating at the desired wavelength.
The UVEX is delivered with a 600 gr/mm grating specified at 500nm as well as an adapter ring for ZWO cameras (others rings for QHY and ATIK cameras are also available)
The spectrograph slit has 5 positions that can be easily changed using a Phillips screwdriver (supplied with the UVEX). The slit position are for 25 µm, 50 µm, 100µm, 300 µm and a hole of 25µm. Other slits are available as an option and Alpy slits are compatible with UVEX.
A shock Proof carrying case is supplied with the UVEX. It has pre-cut compartments to safely transport the spectrograph with its camera as well as various accessories (additional networks, order filter, tools, etc..)
