January 10th sun sketch
Posted 10 January 2013 - 06:12 PM
Yesterday clouds came in much faster than forecasted and I had no time to sketch. Today was supposed to be a very beautiful clear day all day long and night. I only have a whole from 2pm to 4pm before getting overcast again. Stability was terrible but very variable from my own estimation from 1.5 to 4 on 5. At 1.5, it was bared impossible to see any surface details but the proms were still nice. And sometimes stability was great enough to zoom at 300X. Mainly because of clouds, low sun and turbulence, it was impossible to sketch a full disk today. I caught a flare in the white area on the 2nd sketch.

The proms in the first sketch look like fountains.
Very fine detailed work.
