After consultation with colleagues, perhaps a more appropriate attribution would be to the organization that funded the development of the mission as opposed to those that executed the construction of the mission. Therefore for SDO data, the credit line would read

Credit: NASA (SDO)

and if LASCO data were on screen at the same time as SDO data, then one would have

Credit: NASA (SDO), ESA/NASA (SOHO)

with links

NASA = www.nasa.gov

SDO = http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/sdo/main/index.html

ESA = http://www.esa.int/esaCP/index.html

SOHO = http://soho.esac.esa.int/

Also, STEREO = http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/stereo/main/index.html

Where we get the JP2 images is a technical problem perhaps best left to those interested in that particular issue.

After some discussion we have decided to add the attribution information to the about dialog instead of inside the viewport.
