Stephen,

Another beautiful solar sketch. What is the effective magnification limit for the best close up views?

I figured there was no reason to start a new thread each time, already have that in the solar section...

Hope you bought a ticket because the Promapalooza Tour is back!

I have a ticket but somebody packed clouds in the case. Bummer.

NICE sketches, Amigo! Thanks for letting me observe vicariously through them

Stephen,

Excellent observations of solar prominences along the solar limb. It must have been quite a show. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

Stephen

Your excellent documentation as always. Nice sketch work .

You have enticed me to look at the sun soon; as soon as the clouds clear here.

Thanks for posting your work here as I hardly get to the solar sites lately,

Mark

Thanks ya'll!

Got a late view in today, sun was high and there was some limb turbulence so I'm sure I missed some details...

Stephen,

Excellent new views of the solar surface. The two new active regions look interesting. You have captured a good amount of prominence activity as well. Thank you for sharing them with us all.
