What is the procedure after using a diffraction grating (device used to see the spectrum) using python? We would see the entire electromagnetic spectrum emitted by an object but what then? how do I measure the wavelength of the light using Python?

I am expecting the diffraction grating to project the entire spectrum of the an object (probably through an magnifying glass) to an camera, then I want the data from the camera to be analyzed, then the script to show the wavelength of the light emitted

I suspect that OpenCV might be used
