Hi.

You can't imagine how clear the image were in my scope yesterday (monday 15th). As the seeing forecast was 1 to 2 on 5, the sun was incredibly stable in the scope even at 300X. That was so fantastic that I spent the whole afternoon from 30 minutes past noon to 5pm. The surface was just like what you see on a photo, tons of details. Geez I like those clear and stable days.

The 3rd sketch is my 300th !

Andre.

Andre,
Wow the close ups are amazing. I see a hummingbird in the second picture! It amazes me every time I see the shapes of the flares. Congratulations on your 300th sketch.

I just came across this thread through a link from another.

Wow. That's all I can say. Are you sure that's a sketch? Looks like a detailed photo. Simply amazing.

Thank you for visiting my sketches. Welcome here. I'm glad at least one come here from the general discussion forum. That was the goal. Yes they are sketches. I posted more than 300 now and still growing. So please visit everyday to make sure you don't miss them. By next tuesday I'll post some more from the weekend.
