A good place to start is to read about the different equipement available and how to use it, try Astronomical Spectroscopy for Amateurs by Ken Harrison, or his book on grating spectroscopes. After that it would be good to look at some website of people who are doing spectroscopy, such as http://www.threehill...pectroscopy.htm, http://www.astroman.fsnet.co.uk/spectro.htm
For more info and software help and general assistance look at :
