As solar astronomy is becoming very popular among amateur astronomers and laymen, the book provides the practical knowledge to build simple solar telescopes and other equipment for making solar observations.

Amateur astronomers have made important contributions to solar astronomy, and this book will help to guide them in their endeavours.

The book can also serve as a text for undergraduate and graduate students starting out on solar physics.
