This website is dedicated to amateur astronomers interested in the science
of spectroscopy -- for those who wish to go beyond the visual imagry of
observation and photography. FAAS is designed to be an educational tool, and an
internet forum for observers wishing to learn about
the make-up and physical characteristics of stars, nebulae and galaxies
first-hand. FAAS is for the inquisitive
amateur who wishes to take that one crucial step beyond 19th century viewing
and leap into the 21st century to perform their own spectral data collection
This site has information for the beginner, intermediate and advanced level
amateur astrospectroscopist, as well as those having varying budgets.
It has links to a variety of educational resources
for those interested in learning about the history and physics of the science,
at an understandable level, as well as to sites
owned by amateurs who are already doing their own observations.
FAAS is the only web-site specifically devoted to amateur AstroSpectroscopy.
We hope you find it interesting, informative and fun.
