Charles Douglas is the Chief Assistant of the Solar Observatory (and just happens to live next door). Chuck has a Questar and a Daystar Hydrogen Alpha filter. He is retired and seems to have much more time during the day to observe the sun than I do. You will be seeing many of his H-Alpha images captured and presented in the Solar Images section.
