Sketch made with graphite pencils (2H to 4B) on white paper. The telescope used is a 16″ Newtonian, equiped with Baader Astrosolar filter, magnification 175X with binoviewer.
It was made during afternoon, when the seeing conditions are currently better than in the morning.
Because of the proximity of the edge, a bright zone appears surrounding the spot group itself.
