A tool for grabbing the latest white-light image of the Sun and more, taken from the SOHO web site. The image corresponds to the sort of view you would see using a telescope equipped with a standard solar filter. Some brief notes are included to explain what it is you're looking at. Intended for amateur astronomers and teachers/students interested in the Sun. Free. For both mac and windows.

"What is JHelioviewer?
JHelioviewer is visualization software for solar image data based on the JPEG 2000 compression standard. JPEG 2000 offers many useful new features and has the potential to revolutionize the way high-resolution image data are disseminated and analyzed. The JPEG 2000 Interactive Protocol (JPIP) enables serving data in a highly compressed, quality-progressive, region-of-interest-based stream. These features minimize the data volume transmitted while maximizing its usability. This is especially relevant for solar physics since NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory has started providing more than a terabyte of image data per day. "

I thought I would pass this on - this just uploaded today, a sample is on its way to me as I write. UK made and shipped overseas as well.
"C/CS Mount 1 1/4" adapter designed to screw into female the lens thread on cameras using the C/CS 1" Thread. Also threaded for 1 1/4" Filters
Precision CNC Machined in Black Acetal.
(Suitable for lighter weight (Short) Imaging cameras. NOT Suitable to Longer and heavier CCTV Cameras.
Higher Load bearing specification Anodised aluminium alloy versions are also available".
Should be good for us all be it PST or other scopes that need close in camera work.

Yesterday, I was checking out the Night Sky Network (live telescopic broadcasts via the internet) late in the afternoon and one observer was broadcasting superb images of the Sun from AZ. I ended up watching a large prominence that grew, then arched over back to the Sun in real time. Other prominences were looked at by the observer as well as some views of the Sun's photosphere with sunspots.
Though this site is for night observing, checking it during anytime might bring up a solar observer like I did.

Here is my contribution.
These are dynamic documents but here are over 135 books and substantive texts on the sun and solar astronomy starting from 1610 to the present, this is a very useful historical record of the progression and the techniques used for solar astronomy
Over 135 books and substantive papers/historical records on Solar astronomy
Here I have trawled the net to find over 115 substantive videos and TV programs about the Sun, solar activity and solar science
TV programs and substantive videos about the Sun/Solar Astronomy
These two archives are presented in chronological order and I hope you enjoy these and find them useful?
