My TV-102 Light Cup has put together a collection of tips, guides, etc. to help new observers with Jupiter and Saturn. I seemed to recall not too long ago when I first started observing Jupiter and could sure enough see both bands easily.

I seemed to recall not to longer ago when I first started observing Saturn and could sure enough see the ring. However, I couldn't even tell the difference what they're or how the Crepe Ring look like through a small telescope

The SPC seems brighter than last month, still white. But what is this? There appears to be a new "equatorial cap" just south of the equator at the Preceding Rim, white and brighter and much larger than the SPC.

Wow, it's been almost a month since I saw my favorite planet and boy, oh, boy has it gotten shrunk down quite a bit and dimmer by almost a full magnitude!

"I Spy the South Polar Cap". Just like the kid's game, can you see it J? Wow, this was the first time that the SPC was not the first obvious feature since 04/27! The cap no longer have a well defined boundary.
