We present a new autonomous system to study meteors' emission spectra based on the image capture with CCDs, wide field cameras and a holographic diffraction gratings. The equipment contains two spectrographs with different configurations, so that unique and complementary images of the same event can be captured. The system is formed by an Autonomous Mini Observatory, which holds the two spectrographs, connected to a weather station and two computers where the data obtained nightly is stored in their hard drives.
