Walking on the Moon

Quick glance at a nice prominence in H alpha


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


today I could just have some quick glances at our home star trough small gaps in the clouds. There was a nice prominence which was already lifted off from the solar "surface". So I gave it a try with a quick pastel sketch. Unfortunately the clouds won and I had to do the sketch in a bit of a hurry. Anyway, I'll sharing it here with you...




Telescope: Lunt LS50 THa B600 PT

Eyepiece: TS HR Planetary 5mm

Date & TIme: March 6th, 2016 / 1200-1215 CET

Location: home terrace, Dusseldorf region, Germany

Technique: orange pastel pen (Koh-i-Noor Gioconda) on black sketching paper


Hope you like it!
