Got some sun today with the Leica zoom and Coronado 90 Solarmax II!

 

This is my first sketch with this scope.  The paper fell on the wet ground, twice...due to the wind. 

 

My next purchase will be a clipboard to hold my drawings.

 

Clear skies, transparency listed as average, seeing average to poor at times.

 

Here is my sketch, and then later pulled from GONG which was approx an hour after I sketched this at the eyepiece.

 

Edit:  One filament, several proms (some of which are huge but extremely faint), and razor sharp irregular chromosphere.

 

Thanks for looking!
