Solar Observing

 Solar Observing

When the nights are cloudy most amateur astronomers pull out there scopes in the day time to view our closest star. The sun can provide many hours of enjoyable viewing especially when there is considerable activity. The Sun is constantly churning and the photosphere activity can be seen using a Mylar or glass substrate filters mounted snugly on the telescope. Sunspots are usually visible using a small refactor telescope and can be tracked day to day.
