i thought that i would share with you the results from my investigation of the solar spectrum using a diffraction grating (of 600 lines per
millimeter) and my camera. below is a composite image of several photographs i painstakingly took (and spliced together) of the morning sun a couple
of weeks ago. i hope you find it as beautiful as i do!
FYI: i was able to capture the first four orders. the color wavelength separation becomes very irregular (basically just RED->GREEN->RED in the
higher orders. this is probably normal, but i do find it strange.
