  1. 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. Here you are: Telescope: Lunt 50 THa PT B600 Eyepiece: TS HR Planetary 7mm Date/Time: March 12th, 2016 / 1520-1545 CET Location: Home terrace, Dusseldorf region, Germany Technique: reddish pastel pen and pastel on black sketching cardbox Hope you like it! Achim
  2. Dear all, after weeks of cloudy weather especially during the weekends, I got an opportunity to have a look at our home star and do a pastel sketch of the H alpha sun with some solar prominences and a group of sun spots. Telescope: Lunt LS50THaB600PT Eyepiece: Celestron X-Cel 10mm Date & Time: January 26th, 2020 / 1300-1340 CET Location: home terrace, Dusseldorf region, Germany Technique: reddish Koh-i-Noor Toison d'Or pastels and pastel pens on white Hahnemühle mould-made pastel paper Size: 24 x 31 cm Clear and sunny skies! Achim
  3. Dear all, yesterday evening after doing the sketch of the three-day old moon, we had a wonderful twilight scene with Venus and the Moon over here. So I did a pastel sketch how I recalled it afterwards: Clear skies! Achim
  4. 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! Achim
