Dear all,

 

today there were only short sunny spells between the clouds, so I didn't go for a large pastel or charcoal sketch this time. Instead, have a look at the pencil sketch done in my observation logbook. I tried to capture the texture of the solar disc with the pencils. Even though not being fully happy with the result, I share it here:

 

20190527_Sun_H_alpha_small.JPG

 

Telescope: Lunt LS50 THaB600PT

Eyepiece: Celestron X-cel 10mm

Date & Time: May 27th, 2019 / 1200-1230 CEST

Location: home terrace, Dusseldorf region, Germany

Technique: Koh-i-Noor 4H, 2H and HB pencils in Moleskine sketching book

 

All in all I was happy to observe some proms at all on the solar limb - some days ago, the sun was even blank in H alpha light!

 

Clear skies!

 

Achim
