Paper Abstract

A discussion is presented of the scientific objectives that can be pursued by simultaneous coronal/chromospheric observation with the Multi-Spectral Solar Telescope Array (MSSTA), and a new balloon-borne observatory called the Ultra-High Resolution Vacuum Ultraviolet Spectroheliograph (UHRVS). Attention is given to the proposed UHRVS observatory, which will incorporate two instruments, a 65-cm aperture telescope with narrowband filters for high resolution photographic and photoelectric spectroheliograms, and a very high resolution spectrograph which uses a 40-cm aperture telescope. The capabilities of the MSSTA, and the joint UHRVS/MSSTA observing program that is envisioned are reviewed.
