Baader DADOS Calibration lamp
- For DADOS Spectrograph
- Neon "red" calibration source
- Works only in low light conditions
- Comes with power cord and 2" adaptor for DADOS nosepiece
The Baader Neon calibration lamp is for the DADOS spectrograph. The visually perceived colour of this lamp being "Neon red" is a quite unique colour - somewhere between dark-orange and light-red - due to the spectral distribution of the emission lines of the lamp source.
The unit will only shine in the dark due to a twilight switch, so that extraneous light while taking spectra of this Neon calibration lamp is avoided. We recommend that the Neon lamp is attached with its adaptor directly at the 2 inch entrance of the DADOS spectrograph to focus DADOS and to take reference spectra. Please note, however, that although the brightness of the calibration lamp is adequate in this configuration, the lamp is too faint to be used in front of a telescope.
