Beautiful clear sky today to sketch. But because of the really poor seeing, only a full disk was possible. So here it is.

You are right, they mostly match. It's fun.

It's always nice to compare, with... my poor sketch !

Your sketches are not poor. They are good considering the instrument you're using. We obtain what the instrument can show us.... You are talented enough and you would do much better with a larger instrument for sure.

@Michel: Don't feel bad because like André said your drawings aren't poor at all. On the contrary I would say! I love your drawings just as much because they reflect what YOU saw and who YOU are: a very fine artist and a passionate astronomy lover. And as I said in another post, it's nice being able to compare both drawings and to see how the both of you perceived a certain detail on the sun.
