A practical explanation of everything that a telescope user needs to know in order to make solar observations. It deals with choice of equipment for the safe conduct of solar observations, observations of sunspots, and reporting observations. New techniques, such as electronic recording and the operations of radio telescopes, are included. The level of repesentation is understandable to anyone with basic astronomical knowledge and some experience in handling a small telescope.
