Hi.

This morning was a very nice clear day but seeing is terrible. I've been able to sketch these two ones.

Hi.

Thanks Tom.

I just caught three new sketches. I point your attention at the floating prom on the 3rd sketch. Its not really floating, its attached with very faint filament at the base.

Andre.

Always impressed by the detail in your sunsketches! I guess at x225 the sun must be a joy to observe.

Jean and Jef.

Thank you to both of you. Jef. Its really impressive observing such details at 225 and 300X. But that require a so good seeing. Yesterday and today the seeing is not good enough to enjoy the view. I can see the details, but its much longer to get the them. I have to wait a short clearer view between two waves of turbulent atmosphere.

Very shortly, Jean will post a pic of the big prom which I sketched on the third sketch and you will see how similar they are. Its nice to compare with real pic.

Andre.
