Special Astrophysical Observatory of Russian Academy of Sciences (SAO RAS) creates a spectrograph with high spectral resolution for the 6-meter telescope. The spectrograph consists of a mobile unit located at the focus of the telescope’s main mirror, a stationary part located under the telescope and optical fibers which transmit light from the mobile part to the stationary one. The spectral resolution of the stationary part should be R=100000. To achieve such a value, the scheme has two spectral elements, with cross-dispersion. The main spectral element is an echelle grating. The second spectral element is a prism with a diffraction grating on one facet.
