Satellite lines near the resonance lines in He-like and Li-like configurations have been observed in laser-produced plasmas of Be, B, C, N, and O. The observations have been made with a grazing incidence spectrograph with spatial resolution. These lines have been identified and compared with the existing theoretical predictions. Their intensities have been measured relative to the accompanying resonance lines.
