Dear observers,

yesterday I hold a lecture at an astronomer's meeting. Some solar telescopes stood in front of the building. After a row of cloudy day I was astonished to see quite lot sunspots. Today I had the chance to observe and sketch the sun at home, with my much loved 8 cm apochromat. Magnification was 60x.
