The internet is full of resources of interest to the amateur astronomer. Over in the Lunar Observing forum we have put together a list of links to web sites/pages of use to Lunar Observers that has becomes a large and useful resource. I would like to see such a resource brought into being for this forum as well. Toward that end, I have stuck this post to the top of the forum, and begun our list of online solar observing resources with a link provided recently by David W. Knisely :

Observing the Sun in H-alpha

NASA: Solar Physics

Sungazer Reference List

Dave Groski's Solar Page

Big Bear Solar Observatory

National Solar Observatory

NWS Space Environment Center

Astro-Nut.com Solar

Observing the Sun with a Spectroheliograph

Solar Photos from Germany

Cemax Eyepiece Review

ALPO solar section


Please add links that you know of and have found useful. I will periodically go through what is posted on this thread and add it to a master list in this post for convenient access.

Here is link to my site. It's just starting out, but has plans and photos of some of the instruments I've built (Solar Spectroscope, Coronagraph, and homemade 0.8A H-alpha system)

I would suggest
http://sec.noaa.gov which has lots of solar and space weather information. Many, many links there but good starting points are http://sec.noaa.gov/today.html http://sec.noaa.gov/SWN

Paul Hyndman's site has lots of great info on solar imaging http://astro-nut.com/sun.html

Hi,

Here a other link of the site of my friend Philippe Rouselle, a great french amateur of solar astronomy. Philippe is specialized in spectroheliography. Visit his site [ English Version ]. In France for solar astronomy amateurs, a great site !
The link : Observing the Sun with a spectroheliograph

Lots of nice links, guys! Thanks. (My astronomy classes are about to begin studying the Sun--as an average yellow dwarf star--on their way to spectrography and stellar evolution.) As always, I appreciate any help (especially nice resources like this) that I can get!

And, as you may imagine, the kids (high-schools seniors, but still "kids" like the rest of us) love the PST! Lots of ooohs and ahhs!

This will be my first post here on CN.
A fellow whose pictures(when he posts) and 'scopes always impress me enormously is Harald Paleske.It's a surprise to me that nobody else has brought him to attention.
His site is:

http://www.unigraph.de/

It's in German.The pictures tell their own tale,but if you ache for a translation,Google 'languages' or somesuch will cough up an approximation.

Question about solar viewing, right now I use a 10 inch reflector Dob. I have made an off axis 5 inch hole with the baader film. I can view the sun just fine, in the white yellow color. What I would like to know is, how do I see the fine detail in the red, orange color? Could I use a H-alfa filter at the eyepiece, with the baader film on the end of the scope to get more detail? Please help.. Thank's, Don.
