Hello sketchers
Here is my next contribution, still nice sun prom's !
To reach this level of details with my small Lunt (35mm), I have to wait atmosphere stability with the use of the adapted eyepiece.

Michel,
Nice work. I am in the same boat as Andre. Very cloudy, windy and cold. I really enjoy the close up. I am very impressed you captured with such a small scope. Great work.

Fine sketch! Could you send some sun to the north? It looks like autumn has started again in the Low Countries instead of spring :confused:

Michel.

Thanks my friend. Because of you, we have finally the sun. I'll be able to sketch it today after my work ending at 7pm. I'll go on the lake shore where I'll have 1 hour to sketch before sunset. I'll use my small solar scope.

Andre.
