Has anyone done this (or does anyone want to do this )? I only have a colour camera (ASI224MC) which I don't think is compatible with something like the SA100 or SA200, but maybe it is.

Thanks in advance,

Andrew
displaying my ignorance here, but I would think that the spectra would largely be sunlight being reflected back at us. And if there are any absorbtion lines that do not appear in sunlight, this might tell us a little of their atmospheres but not much else.
