I bought an Orion telescope and it is great, no problems with it. http://telescope.com They give information and links to other international sites/ companies.

Orion does make solar filters for certain models. I have one for mine and it works great to look at the sun with. Able to see sunspots and all.
Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
If it makes sense, DON'T do it.
