Hi All,

Thank you,

Welcome to the lounge.

You can observe the sun with any telescope with a solar filter on the front of the scope, e.g. a filter made of Baader foil. This will show you a white sun and you can see sun spots, but no granulation.

If you have a refractor, you can buy more advanced solar equipment and see a lot more. I hope you will get a better answer from those with more solar experience.

Hi Stergio and welcome to SGL - I look forward to seeing what people recommend for you as I am in a similar boat for a visual solar setup for my Mum. I think I've decided on what she needs, but always willing to change my mind :D

Look forward to seeing you around :)
