Lovely sun activity today, just on time for our sun's party at La Blaque Observatory, located near Varages in Provence.
In H alpha I can compare my Lunt 35, 2 Coronado Solarmax 60 a PST, a Meade LX200 10"Halpha, but the major refractor was a Lunt 152, what a view ! I need more than a day to sketch this through...
For the sketch here under I choice the best compromise, a Coronado Solarmax 60-double stack with Pentax 7mm and Barlow 1.3. Thanks to Frédéric and Karine for the sketching time !
