Product Details

  • Shelyak eShel Spectrograph System

    The Shelyak eShel is the perfect spectroscopy solution specially designed for astronomy. This unique and highly functioning instrument will allow you to productively run your spectroscopic observations. Shelyak designed this spectrograph with Christian Buil, a highly recognized optician expert. The software module has been written by Michel Pujol, an expert in Tcl/Tk and AudeLA platform. They both complement Shelyak's expertise to bring you the best solution in Echelle spectroscopy for astronomy! (Sample Echelle spectrogram in the Gallery image.) The choice of optical fiber has been made to increase radial velocities measurement accuracy and for better comfort in using the eShel.
