Andre,
Another great sketch. I was able to view the sun in h alpha yesterday. However we had bad winds and many clouds. It was a single stack about 50 mm. I was able to see a pretty good size prominence. Your sketch matches the prominences exactly as I saw. I even appreciate the sketch more after viewing.

Ken
