Lucky you Michel. Nice sketch and big proms.

I'm working day shift saturday to monday, so no sketch for me this weekend. Yesterday I'm missed a beautiful clear day. Sunday and monday are overcast here.

Please let us see what the sun looks like.

Andre.

Hi Jef, the original sketch is done only with pencil and blending stumps for the disk. Here 45 minutes through the eyepiece.
I invert the full sketch, then I isolate the disk that I reinvert, so the disk is like the original and the sky is black, after this I add a red mask, this take just 5 minutes with the freeware Paint.net.
If my explanation it's not clear, I can show you the different steps ?
