We obtain essentially Doppler free spectra of the naturally occuring isotopes of Mg+, which are bound in a Penning trap, by using a frequency stabilized laser to continuously cool the ions, while the scatter rate from a second, frequency swept laser is, monitored. We show that the magnetron motion as well as the cyclotron and axial motion can be minimized. Line position measurements yielding resonance transition energy, isotope and hyperfine shifts are reported.
