Sunny weather + long lunch break = solar observing! This afternoon I took 30 minutes to sketch the Sun in h-alpha. It's been so long since my last solar sketch, I even had to search for the pastels. I made a full disk sketch, the active region AR1726 was large enough so see in detail even at low magnifications. For this sketch I used a 22mm LVW (32x) in my 70mm h-alpha telescope.

Location: Deventer, The NetherlandsDate: April 22, 2013 Media: White pastel pencil on black paper, colorized and mirror reversed with Photoshop
