Hi.

In a 30 minutes clear sky early afternoon, I have just time to do these three sketches before the clouds come back.

Hi Andre, Amazing sketches! You have a great pattern for Granulation.
...and very, very nice Telescope:)
Sun is orange in this telescope? Not red?

Hi

Thank you so much for your kind words.

Yes its a great scope for visual. The sun is redish but for my sketches I use orange color. Its not as good when I use red color

Hi.

No fault... The problem using red surface, the chromosphere disappear at the same time. I don't know ? It would be nice to have the opinion of other peoples.

Everybody here in astrophotography use different color for the surface from red to blue. Its a personal choice and all are good.

Hi.

I did a test. I cloned the sunspots from the black and white sketch because adding this amount of red make the sunspots very dark and not realistic. In a complex susspots setup, that would be difficult to reproduce.

Thanks my friends.

What's your opinion or preference in regards of the surface color ? I would like to hear all of you.

As for me, I prefer the yellowish color and some have agreed with that choice on another forum. And you ?

Andre.

Hi.

As I like looking at my sketches in a slideshow, I no more like the second sketch of this serie because now everytime I see it during the slideshow, I see a big frog with two big eyes... I can't no more see the prom itself.

Honestly, I prefer the alien look of the sun in CaK. :lol:

But to answer your question, the yellowish orange look of your original work is realistic and easy to look at. I'd vote to stick with what you've been doing. :waytogo:
