Natural charcoal sketch of the H alpha sun on mould-made paper, 2019-02-25

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

even though the current solar images on the GONG H Alpha Network Monitor on the internet (http://halpha.nso.edu/) seemed to be pretty boring, I set up the Lunt on the terrace to give it a try. Surprisingly I saw several wonderful but faint proms on the solar limb. So I did a sketch with natural charcoal once again:

20190225_Natural_charcoal_H_alpha_sun_01.JPG.2e63c3329a05947c4a129b8df9aa138b.JPG

Telescope: Lunt LS 50 THa B600 PT
Eyepiece: Celestron X-cel 10mm
Date & Time: February 25th, 2019 / 1145-1215 CET
Location: home terrace, Dusseldorf region, Germany
Technique: natural charcoal on white Hahnemühle Ingres mould-made pastel paper
Size: 24x31cm

So the GONG images give a good hint for visible details on the sun. But if possible, have a personal look with your own H alpha telescope.

Clear and sunny skies!

Hi Achim,

it's a wonderful sketch. There's a definite 3D feel to it. That charcoal must be more than natural!
