charging deep cycle batteries using solar panels?

hey everyone:) my dad asked me to build a set up to charge a deep  cycle battery or two using solar panels... if you could point me to a few good instructables i would greatly appreciate it cause i like working with electronics but i'm pretty much self taught and still a noob at it so i'm on here Quite frequently?

There's a shed load on Instructables appearing on the right of this question: take a look at them, and come back. You need to buy a solar charge controller really.

Have you somewhere useful to dump excess energy ? A classic idea is to put a resistor in your hot water tank, and heat that with the "waste"
