Hi.

My solar scope is tracking the sun since this morning and I did four sketches of the today's action...

From sketch section

But while I was working on my sketches for about 30 minutes, a sudden very fast eruption happened and I missed it !!! Man I'm frustrated.

Andre.

Those are sketches?!? If you hadn't said so, I would have assumed they were photographs--fantastic job! :bow:

Yes, I started sketching the sun last august 13th and I have lot of fun doing it daily. I invite you to look at all my sketches in the sketch section from august 13th. I posted lot of them. Some are very spectacular because of the action of the moment. I use four different eyepieces as 180X, 225X, 257X and 300X depending of the conditions in my backyard.

Andre.
