Abstract

The requirements and conditions for high resolution imaging and polarimetry of the Sun are reviewed. Various methods and techniques are discussed for image stabilization and sharpening in solar observations. The new solar facilities in the Canary Islands in particular are frequently reaching diffraction limited resolution and yield new insight in the structure and dynamics of the solar atmosphere. Future ground based telescopes like THEMIS and LEST, as well as planned solar missions in space will trigger a next advance in solar physics.
