Hi.

What a beautiful sun today. Impressive proms. I spent 4 hours outside drawing the magnificent proms. The two last sketches represent the same prom when she expanded suddenly. All was that fast I was almost unable to sketch. On that kind of proms moving rapidly, the drawing skill level is at maximum...

Andre.

Andre,

An impressive set of solar observations! You have recorded much detail across the solar surface and interesting prominences. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

Regards,
Carlos

Great stuff Andre, I was viewing this for a few hours yesterday. It was special, I had a rare monument when everything was just right.
Thanks for sharing,
Dale

Ken.

Thanks. You can't imagine how I watched these proms over the four hours I spent on the sun viewing. I used several eyepieces with lot of magnification and FOV. That was just beautiful. Watching the limb at 257X and a FOV of 82º is quite impressive.

Andre.

Andre,
I had some family in from Virginia and they had never seen the Sun in H-Alpha it was interesting watching their reactions to the proms. I was quite amazed in just what I could see in my 35mm scope at 44X. I can only imagine your view.
