Dear all,

 

these days we have a sunny and hot summer over here. Today I tried to capture the "aura" of the sun caused by some dust in our atmosphere when doing the pastel sketch of the H alpha solar disc. I spent almost half an hour with the solar disc and its aura and then just 15 minutes for the proms and filaments. So here's the result:

Telescope: Lunt LS50THaB600PT
Eyepiece: Celestron X-cel 10mm

Location: home terrace, Dusseldorf region, Germany
Technique: red and orange Koh-i-Noor pastels and pastel pens on black Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper
Size: 24 x 32 cm

 

Clear (and sunny) skies!

 

Achim
