Paper Abstract

Much progress has been made during the last years in obtaining polarimetric observations of the Sun close to the diffraction limit. Here I summarize the problems one encounters when observing close to the diffraction limit of a large solar telescope, review techniques, present examples of recent observations, and discuss the need for further developments of instruments and image reconstruction techniques.
