using a scope for solar

For those who can't decide if there's not enough day, or not enough night!

*** WARNING ***

Do not EVER look directly at the Sun through a telescope or in any other way, unless you have the proper filters and have been educated in their proper use. This can cause INSTANT eye damage, and remember, you only get ONE pair of eyes!

Hello everyone
I was told this would be the best place to ask this question. Iam vertically a beginner when it comes to astronomy. I have 3 scopes all celestron. I have the powerseeker EQ114 on a standard EQ mount, a astromaster EQ130 on a goto mount and a Az70 refractor on a standard mount. I really want to start to do a bit of solar stuff as well. Could anyone advise me if any of my scopes would be good enough for this with a decent solar filter
