Question: Question: ccd camera on metascop

leanr is asking a question about spectrometry: Follow this topic

Hi all,

I got a clandon metascop and I would love to connect it to a ccd camera in order of using it, provide so good spectral. I am mainly interested in gold, silver, copper, zinc, alloys. May you suggest to me what kind of camera may I buy? I guess a cooled monocrome. Suggestions are wecolme.



That looks like a real find.



I suspect some experimentation will be required to get photos of the spectra. The spectral image is probably not very bright.


Be careful with the breaking arc generator.

Thanks Chris, the images are from the metascop manual. The camera on the images is an analogic one from the '70ies, I would love to know if and how may I connect a digital camera and what kind of camera may be better to get results.

Whoa, what does a metascop do?

it gives you the spectrum of the examined metal or alloy

Does it burn or otherwise affect the surface it's pointed at? Cool.

yes, by and electric arc, so it vaporize the metals.

I just got a CCD 1/3" and an optic megapixel f8 mm 1:1,4 and a grabster AV300, I just need to connect it to the metascop, and find the software...
