For a long time the telescope and the observer's eye were the principal means of advancing solar investigation, but in the last half century a number of other less familiar instruments and physical principles have been employed, which require some explanation. The Telescope A few words may be said first as to the methods of employing the telescope. The sun is far too bright to view for any length of time with the naked eye, much less with the telescope, unless means are used for reducing the brightness. It is said that the Belgian physicist, Plateau, having looked steadily at the sun twenty seconds for the purpose of studying the after images which would be produced, lost his sight permanently in consequence. To get a rough general view of the sun a screen is often used in the manner shown in Fig. 6. The dis- pjfee depends on e power of the :to and fro in (lily obtained, ht of the tele- off undesired jtermining the I klf dc, see Monthly yciety, vol. xiv, the sun cannot Fe several ways jlescopic vision.

A reflecting telescope, if its object mirror is left unsilvered, may require only a shade glass for visual work with the sun; and, on the other hand, the objective lens of a refractor may be thinly silvered to cut down the light. But both these expedients unfit the telescope for other purposes. There are sever...
