Abstract Title: A powerful spectrograph based upon a low cost spectrograph
Abstract: We have been using low cost spectrographs (made of cardboard and DVD fragments) for a few years.  In the process of our study, we decided to make a spectrograph using the same optical design but with quality optical parts.   This new spectrograph was found to be easily aligned, very accurate (~ 0.2 Angstrom accuracy), and enables intermediate and advanced students to study molecular spectral lines.  We will present theory of operation as well as accurate photographs of molecular spectra.
