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.

1. How did you take this picture?
2. How did you embed such a long photo onto the internet?
3. If you sell this picture to a church after imposing a cutout of Jesus in front of the light, could you split the proceeds with me for suggesting the idea?

Absolutely beautiful and intriguing OP! Love this!

The light and colors of light remind me how thankful I am we have this Sun and I hope it stays strong in the years to come.

Visible light! That's so cool how you captured part of the color spectrum.

I want to thank you for a thread about the sun that didn't include a brown dwarf/rogue planet/lens flare loitering off to the side or from behind.

Such wonder you have created!

This is how the energy within our own bodies vibrates!

Thank you for this moment of stillness my friend. My gratitudes

1- i acquired the diffraction grating during my physics laboratory earlier this semester. i had the idea one morning to give a look at the sun with it.

the next day i set up my tripod and held the plate in front of the lens, manually controlling the angle with each frame of the image. it took me about four hours to figure out the best way to stabilize the setup and optimize the angle of the plate so that i would receive the widest spectrum. and another several hours to sort through it all for the editing.

2 - the only restriction on ATS image host is the filesize, which is quite small considering the dimensions of the image. i am making a higher resolution of the image avalable here -----> larger image

3 - jesus lives in the sun?!



thanks, everyone, for the responses.....

Why is this interesting?

Not flaming, but just need to know why this is awesome.

hahaha exactly my thoughts

thats pretty amazing, using your setup would you be able to make a video?
