Merge Solar observatory[edit]

I propese that Solar observatory be merged into this article. My rationale for the proposal is that 'Solar observatory' has very little content and the two terms seem to be quite synonymous - List of solar telescopes includes a lot places with 'observatory' in their names.

I'm unconvinced. I see them a logically separate topics. As currently written, the "solar telescope" article sort of focuses on optical solar telescopes while other telescopes exist. If anything, I think merging "solar telescope" to "solar observatory" right be the better way around. Jason Quinn (talk) 20:01, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
Does the section "Amateur solar telescopes" merge well into solar observatory? A silhouette of the sun using a telescope, does that account for a solar observatory? In other words, does the minimalist definition of a solar telescope account for a solar observatory? If so they can merge. otherwise there would have to be some type of compromise to make it work.
