Hi,

I posted this sketch of AR1057 in the Solar Observing forum. A nice sunspot group and a big one, too. The sketch was done at the scope on Strathmore sketch paper with HB, 2B, and 6B pencils. I flipped the sketch horizontally after scanning to conform to standard convention.

Clear skies,

Michael,

Very nice detailed sketch. It has been so long since I have looked at the sun I'll need to hunt down my solar filter.
Beautiful! :bow:

Frank :)

Thanks, Frank. You'll want to find that filter--the Sun is waking up. :)

Roland, T5--thanks. :) That AR is persisting, so you can still get a good look at it.

Thanks, Lynn. I highly recommend getting some kind of a solar filter. With the Daystar finally coming out of minimum, there will be more and more to see in white light and Halpha. :cool:

Jim Ferreira posted this WL image in the solar forum. It's interesting to compare to my sketch.
