I saw this view too. Very nice capture of the details.
Jupiter is at its very best now beginning at the time of your sketch. Very nice post.

Your sketch is an accurate rendering of the view as I saw it 2 days later--things hadn't changed that much.
I like your description of the variable seeing--sometimes I'm tempted to keep messing with the focus when it's like that but one is better off to keep hands off and be patient.
I used the #11 filter to advantage in my latest observation, too.

An excellent observation and report of Jupiter. Your description of the jovian atmosphere with the colors and flow is what brings us all back to the king of the planets. Thank you for sharing it with us all.
