I would like to share my sketch about the sunspots in the group 11302. I have made this sketch with a 200/2470 refractor in Polaris Observatory Budapest. This is my first sketch with this fine details at such enlargement of the object.
Unfortunately the seeing was not the best, but still I always had 1-2 seconds when everything was clear so I could sketch what I see. It was exciting to see what fine details are visible within the umbra and not only in the penumbra.
