March 28th sun sketch

Magnificent day today with very active sun. I spent at least 2 hours in my dome. Lot to sketch. Once again, full disk made in the morning and close ups in the afternoon.

Your sketches are amazing. I have been looking at them every day you submit them. I bet you must have explained your technique in the past. Do you have a link? I am interested in how you do it. Thanks, Kent

I compared my today's captures from the paper to the eyepiece and believe me, that's the size I see them in my FOV, no fake. At 225 or 300X, they looks really big and detailed when seeing is excellent. But unfortunately, it's very rare I can go theses magnifications. Just look on my sketches my observerving conditions according to atmosphere and convecting het around my dome from roof tops. From 3.5 to 5 it's pretty good. At 3.5 like today, that mean I get some moment of great stability for short period of time permitting me to magnify and sketch high details between two waves of unstable air.
Thank you Jean.
