Very well done. It is hard to believe that is not a photographic image. Exceptional!

I agree with Aquarist.

Your sketches are near-photographic.

And they are all truly exceptional!

Once again, André, you hit the target with this excellent sketch.

Surface activity is hard to picture and you nailed every feature brilliantly!

Jean.

Thank you so much. Tell me, why the surface details are so hard to capture in a photo ? Is it because there is too much light ?

Andre.

Hello André, I should have said it is hard for ME. When the seeing is bad I find it hard to stabilize the fine details of sunspots and filaments. In addition, post-processing is crucial as this is the step to get the right contrasts for the surface features to show. Let alone the fact that I have to assemble a mosaic...
