April 06th sun sketch

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...

Great captures. I was watching this amazing activity with my little lunt. These proms where just amazing to watch. You must have had fun sketching. Great work.

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.

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.
