Very nice and stable day today. No wind and.comfortable temperature. Sun is higher and warmer. Very nice details for the full disk but less good for close up, so I didn't make any.

Er... on second thought... it's almost impossible to say which of your drawings is best because they're all stunning. Seems like you had some fantastic proms today. The one on top looks like two fighting ants and also the one on the bottom-right is beautiful.

Thank you guys.

Peter. You know, I'm looking at my 237 sketches on a slide show everyday either on the computer or Ipad and let me tell you I would be really confused to tell which one is the best. They all have something different and nice to look at. That's the sun. Each view in the scope is a lot of surprises and beautiful things to look at. More sketches I have, more difficult is to choose only one. So I enjoy them all. I'm just back from my dome, I did today's full disk because it's a very nice clear day.
