An improved observing technique has been used to look for long period oscillations in the brightness of the extreme solar limb. This technique provides a means for analyzing power spectra to secure a signature characteristic of the signal's origin. Results show significant improvement in the discrimination between solar oscillations, other signals, and noise. Long period intensity oscillations can be seen at the extreme solar limb.
