Paper Abstract

The Multi-Spectral Solar Telescope Array (MSSTA) has obtained numerous high-resolution soft X-ray/EUV/FUV solar images with multilayer telescopes; these show dramatic prominences, spicules, and threadlike limb structures. There is excellent correlation between faint Lyman-alpha coronal structures seen in the digitized MSSTA images and prominences seen in H-alpha images gathered by ground-based observatories. The MSSTA has established the feasibility of an all-reflecting, imaging Ly-alpha coronagraph/polarimeter.
