Very very nice. I am seriously considering picking up a Lunt solarscope, especially after seeing these sketches.

André,

I am so glad the Sun finally decided to enter a phase of great activity. I spent nearly 5 hours last weekend observing our star and it was worth every minute of it and the sunburn I got. I also spent some time sketching the whole disk (will post the result later).

Your sketches are amazingly accurate and detailed.

Jean
