Hi.

Another close up of the big prom. Very very hard to draw and take much longer than usual.

Andre.

Yes my friend. Doing the sketches and processing them after is really time consuming.

Ken.

I don't know if you already remarked that in all my close up sketches, but if you look at the big prom, she's up side down on the full disk. That mean I have to draw up side down too as I can't turn the image through the eyepiece. That add a lot of challange to the sketch.

Andre,
I noticed that. It looks like it would be quite difficult. I applaud your efforts to capture the Sun each day for us to see. More great sketches. It would be neat to have them all in a time lapse showing how the Sun changes.

Great Work.

I agree with Jean, and,... If the sun continue shining with this activity, it will not be the last good one from André ! Suspence !
