If you can't tell, I'm trying to emulate the sketching technique you and Mark use. Right now I'm trying to train my hand to mimic what my eye sees...
Anyway, wild horses couldn't drag me away, and today's major prominance sort of reminds me of one.

I got to do some observing from a friend's SM90 on his Stellarvue and my arm just reached, although it was a stretch.
That eastern limb has really been putting on a show this week. I had a similar sketch to yours from several days ago.
Here's a photo of the SV/SM90combo with me sketching underneath my fleece. What a treat.

Excellent observations of solar prominences. You have captured their appearance well in your observations. Thank you for sharing them with us all.
Erika- We all look forward to your future observations of our nearest star.

My arms are just long enough to reach the tuning ring from the EP with the TV-102. I have it piggybacked with the White Light Setup in this pic.
Do you sketch an outline at the eyepiece and then do a larger one from memory? It looks like a small pad is in your hands.
