I was looking at the Sun Now on the Solar Dynamics Observatory site. Oh that long filament and interesting north limb proms seemed like a target for my PST. So yes observed it and then drew it. Easter Saturday North Limb proms and filaments on the disc. 13:00 UT - 13:55 UT PST 40 - 8 mm eyepiece using Pastels , on black paper.

Dee.

First time you post a sketch here ? You have a very different technique as most peoples. Very nice representation of the surface granulation. Congratulation. Hope to see more from you.

Dee.

You are a woman... Fun to see how names can tell the ****. Nice to meet a solar devoted woman. I checked your website, you have done very unusual things with the kids.

Congratulation.

Yes Andre indeed I am a woman :watching: observer of both the sun and the moon. In fact myself and two other women Sally Russell and Erika Rix did a book on lunar sketching some time ago. Richard Handy and the wonderful Frank above were part of the moon sketching group. :-) Sketching the Moon an Astronomical Artists Guide.

Thanks Rolandlinda :-)

Great drawing Dee. The more I see the solar drawings the more I am now wanting a small PST. For now I use a sun funnel and even my 2 year old daughter asks to see the Sunspots with her older sister. I am enjoying reading your site. I of course have Turn Left at Orion so I especially liked the presentation pictures.

Hope to see more of your work here!
