This study is devoted to the transmission of Ne10+ ions through a Si thin crystal. The ion energy is 60 MeV and the crystal thickness is varied from 159 to 478 atomic layers, i.e. within the first rainbow cycle. The analysis is performed by the theory of crystal rainbows. The angular distribution of the transmitted ions is generated by the computer simulation method. Then, the rainbow lines in the scattering angle plane are determined. These lines ensure the full explanation of the angular distribution.
