During the workshops conducted by Michał Błaszkiewicz and Robert Nowakowski from the Polish Society of Astronomy Enthusiasts, the principles of safe observations through the telescope will be discussed. Observation of the sun’s photosphere and chromosphere using advanced solar telescopes, Lunt LS60T Hα/B1200 and refractor (Image of a daytime star in the full visible spectrum and in the narrow hydrogen band Ha 656.28 nm).
Differences between the construction of individual telescopes and changes introduced by successive optical constructors over the years will be discussed. The operation of a solar telescope with an integrated etalon filter and a refractor with a full-aperture solar filter (ND5 mylar film) will be explained.
Additionally, the theoretical and practical way of operation of advanced equatorial mounts with the automatic GoTo system and its use by beginner and advanced amateur astronomers will be shown.
The most beautiful photos of Polish astrophotographers will also be presented. During the workshop, the principles of processing recorded videos from solar observations will be shown. Free video stacking programmes will be used.
