There's some nice activity today. I caught several nice prominences and (I think) AR1040.

I used white and black charcoal on black paper, I like this medium, and will probably continue to use it in the future.

TE,

Another excellent observation of the Sun in H-alpha. You have captured the explosive solar surface very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

With every fine sunsketch of your hand, I think: "I have to buy a PST, I have to buy a PST, I have...". I hope you keep on posting sunsketches untill the day I will buy one.

Very nice solar sketch with prominences and surface activity! :bow: :bow: :bow:

Could you elaborate on the exact paper that you used and the size again? Also, I am aware of grey and black charcoal but not white. Is it possible that your white is actually Conte chalks-crayons or pastels?

Keep up the good work!

Thank you for the comments everyone.

Jef,
I had those same thoughts when looking at sketches of the sun. That is what prompted me to get a PST.

Mark,
It's 9"x12" Artagain black paper and the sun is eight inches in diameter. The white is a General's Charcoal White pencil. I don't know what it's made from, but it's for use with black charcoal. The black filament in my sketch was done with a sharpened vine charcoal.
