Spectroscopy (or Spectrometry) is the study of radiation intensity as a function of Wavelength. It is the method for determining the chemical composition of astronomical bodies as well as Temperature and radial motion. Spectrography is virtually the same study but implies the use of a spectrographic image, displaying the spectrum across its width.
Instruments operating at or near Visible Light typically use prisms or Gratings that angle light according to wavelength (Dispersion). Dispersion with prisms is small so often multiple prisms are used in tandem, e.g., a Triple Prism Spectrograph.
Photometry is like a very-low-Spectral Resolution (R) spectroscopy, studying stars and astronomical bodies based upon just a few Passbands. Its advantage is that it requires much less Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR), thus can be used for more distant objects.
Some instrument terms/classes:
Intensity at each wavelength is typically the item of interest but there are also cases when Polarization at each wavelength if the item of interest.
