Dear Asod,

I send you hereby my sketch made this Saturday at Polaris Observatory, Hungary. I used a 114/900 Skywatcher with Baader solar filter for white light sketch and a Lunt 35 for the H-alpha sketch.
The most intersting part is a solar prominence on the northern edge, which is was a very 3D something, biting in the sun-disk.

Equipments used: 114/900 SW (100x) & Lunt 35/400 H-alpha
Date: 18th February 2012, UT: 10:40 (white light) and 11:20 (H-alpha)
Place: Hungary, Budapest, Polaris Observatory
Media: graphite pencil used on white paper

Clear skies,
Judit
