Pastel sketch of the H alpha sun, May 29th

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

as suggested by Hughsie, here's my pastel sketch my contribution to the solar imaging challenge. 


Telescope: Lunt LS50THaB600PT
Eyepiece: Celestron X-Cel 10mm
Date & Time: May 29th, 2019 / 1630-1700 CEST
Location: home terrace, Dusseldorf region, Germany
Technique: reddish Koh-i-Noor Toison d'Or pastels and pastel pens on greyish Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper

Like all of my astronomical sketches , I did this one directly at the eyepiece. The picture of the sketch is taken with my smartphone and just cropped.

Clear (and sunny) skies!


Size: 24 x 32 cm
