This paper measures the solar radius, using the new Tubitak National Observatory astrolabe as well as data acquisition and reduction procedures. The mean values of the solar radius obtained are slightly lower than the other results to which they are compared. We have compared our results with data obtained since 1981, and show that our results are very homogeneous. We hope to extend these measurements to obtain accurate determinations of solar position.
