Found some holes in the cloud's layer today. Not for very long.

Just a question, André, are you able to sketch out through a thin layer of clouds with your Lunt? With mine (35T) it´s impossible.

For sure. This scope can see through the louds and I get much more surface details when there is a thin cloud's layer because the light gathering is less intense. That act like a double stack. Very often I sketch with clouds. Only the faint proms are affected. But can't do close ups with clouds as lcontradts re extremely affected.
But you know what. I tend to prefer sketching now the surface with my little C80. Because the apperture is much smaller, surface details are much apparent especially filament and white regions. The LS152 is a more dedicated close ups scope than full disk.

An other terrific addition to your sun nuseum. Be careful! NASA is coming to your place to buy every piece of your work!
