Recently SCLERA has been involved in expanding its observing program with the introduction of a new technique to include the search for global solar oscillations in the visible to near infrared continuum. In 1985, data was collected by Oglesby (1986) using this new technique. To a high degree of statistical significance, the classification of the low-order, low-degree solar acoustic modes by Hill (1984) has been confirmed with the 1985 data. The n = 1 eigenfrequency spectrum has been divided into three bins according to 7 ≤ ℓ ≤ 12, 13 ≤ ℓ ≤ 17, and 18 ≤ ℓ ≤ 22 and the confirmation for each bin is at the 4.7σ, 3.6σ, and 3.8σ levels, respectively.
