Hello Alex,thanks for note.It is a very good point that with the low Sun, and perhaps some cloud on the horizon there might be a temptation to view the Sun through the cloud with an unfiltered telescope. But this would be a very risky thing to do – even a fraction of second break in the cloud could let enough IR through to permanently damage your eyesight.I think I will expand on this on the Observing section of the page.Best, Callum
