October 20th sun

Yesterday was a star party at my local club. A special event and a concourse. During daytime the weather was pretty good and quite stable atmosphere. I've been able to caught 4 sketches while some peoples watching me drawing. The first sketch was very complex to reproduce. Lot of filaments and complex structure. I don't claim this one is 100% accurate. And we had the chance to see a 20 minutes flare on the 4th sketch. A couple of people have been able to see it.
Oh, during the concourse, I wont the 1st price for 'finesse du détail' what I would translate as 'attention to detail'
Once again, all have been VERY impressed to look at the Lunt LS152. This scope is a real dream for several peoples.

Well deserved 'attention to detail award'.
Nice sketches all.

Here four pics someone took at the special event while I was drawing the first sketch before the crowd get in. Live on the field...
Someone said on another french forum that she was very impressed by the fact I can draw with my right eye on the eyepiece and using the left one to draw. She was also impressed on how fast I draw my sketches...

Great work! The huge bridge prom in the SW seems gone now looking at Gong photos. It was imaged by many in b/w, colour and video and your rendition equals the best in any media.

Jean. No shield. Only my old hat... Since I draw keeping my eye most of the time at the eyepiece, I keep my dark adaptation. I can now draw using only one eye.
Mel. I posted on a french forum the sequence of this prom.

The sequence of the huge prom collapse over an hour and a half is absolutely stunning. What a catch! Thank you for the link.
