DIY spectroscope

Hi All, At last I got my DIY spectroscope going, this is a neon light bulb I got, is there a way to get it to luck the same as the ones you see in various books with the peaks up from a line

Peter,
You can use the continuum normalisation (check the BASS help files) this will convert the background continuum to a straight line.
I should say, however that you seem to be recording a lot of background light.
The neon spectrum usually has a very low background continuum, with significant emission peaks.
