Hi.

I was not at home, so I brought my little solar scope to sketch.

Thanks guys.

May I suggest you a little trick to enjoy even more the details on my sketches... Instead of clicking on the link for my sketch, open it in a new tab and zoom CTRL + the browser to fit the disk on the screen. This way you will get less bright area around the disk and will see more the faint proms. That's the problem with the forum, the bright background make the proms difficult to see compare to looking at my sketch on a black background as on an Ipad or image viewer.

Andre.
