                                description:  The Hungarian solar physics has been re-vitalized in the Astronomical Insitute at Sv?bhegy, Budapest in 1946, by establishing the Solar Department. The department moved to the educational observatory of the Kossuth University, Debrecen which was located in the Botanical Garden of the university and a new research institute came into life under the directorship of Lor?nt Dezs? named Heliophysical Observatory of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. The original building of the observatory has been enlarged and photoheliographic observations have been started on a regular basis. One of the photoheliographs has been moved to the Gyula Observing Station built atop of the water tower of Gyula (a town about 110 miles from Debrecen), which yielded twofold advantages. On one hand, there is only a single solar telescope in the world (Mount Wilson 150 feet), whose coelostat is farther from the ground level than the Gyula telescope (43 m) which is of basic importance for the image quality. On the other hand, we have about 50 additional observing days yearly.
