Hi all, this afternoon the sun was shining so nice and bright that I picked the Lunt and put it quickly on the pipe mount. There were two wonderful, very detailed prominences. I picked the finer one and did a quick pastel sketch of it.

Hi all, this noon, I observed the sun with the Lunt 50, in particular the great sun spot AR2529 which looked wonderful in H-alpha. During the observation, two bright spots close to each other appeard (one at the southern edge of the sun spot, the other one a bit more to the south east). I really enjoyed to see the solar surface gradually change while I was observing. Here's my sketch: Telescope: Lunt 50 THa B600 PT Eyepiece: Skywatcher Planetary 5mm Date & Time: April 9th, 2016 / 1130-1230 CEST Location: balcony, Dusseldorf region, Germany Technique: Koh-i-Noor pastel and charcoal pens on Daler Rowney Ebony black sketching paper Clear and sunny skies!
