Olivier started looking up to the sky when he was 10 years old. His father bought him a 4.5 inch telescope which he turned during long night hours toward galaxies and faint nebulae. In the 1990s, Olivier bought himself an 8-inch equatorial telescope and a CCD camera; he mixed deep sky imaging with photometry work on variable stars and asteroid lightcurves. He naturally moved into spectroscopy to broaden his spectrum of tools to study the stars and participated in the development of the Lhires III high resolution spectrograph. In 2006, he co-founded Shelyak Instruments which now propose a full range of spectrographs specially designed for astronomy.

Amateur spectroscopy has boomed in recent years. This talk will focus on how to begin in spectroscopy with a very small refractor, but still perform astrophysics from your backyard and capture spectra of very interesting objects.
