The Sun

Earth's local star, captured in images taken through a variety of telescopes and cameras, including normal astronomical telescpes with special filters fitted, and Hydrogen alpha telescopes that only allow a very narrow wavelength of radiation through. These telescopes reveal remarkable structure in prominences, filaments, and other normally invisible solar features.

NEVER look at the Sun without properly filtered equipment or you risk losing your sight. For advice, contact us directly, or if in doubt Do Not Observe.
