These proceedings sample new results derived from extended-objected IR observations and explore the capabilities of large-aperture, low-scattered-light instrumentation. The latest results from IR solar observations are described and a broad range of night-time problems from gravitational lens detection to planetary detection are explored in the context of what capabilities a large reflecting coronagraphic telescope could offer.


Coronal heating mechanisms (I); some observational consequences of coronal heating models (II); IR coronal lines from EUV data; new observations of IR coronal emission lines; 1Kx1K short wave IR arrays for astronomy; SBRC IR detector developments; near IR coronal spectroscopy; CFHT's imaging FFT spectrometer; eclipse measurements of CO and pfund beta emission distribution above the solar limb using amber InSb array at the McMath-Pierce; new telescopes, prospects and review; faint sources, coronagraphs and the diffraction limit; coronagraphic observations of near-stellar environments; coronagraphic observations of gravitational lenses; coronagraphic observations of solar system objects; thermal bifurcation revisited; two-component modelling of solar IR CO lines; solar magnetic features - an overview of the observations.
