Jupiter with Callisto
Posted 06 October 2009 - 02:12 PM
this is the first time I post a sketch of mine ,here at Cloudy Nights.The Sketch was made last week, when I saw the shadow of the moon Callisto on Jupiter and the Great Red Spot.I observe from a city in the middle west of Germany.
My Telescop is a No Name Refractor 102/714 similar to the Omegon 102/714.
best wishes and CS

Nicely done sketch. Jupiter is now well positioned after nightfall for observation and sketching. Thank you for posting this excellent pencil drawing of Jupiter, many of its features, and the moon shadow of Callisto.

at the last five days weather was to bad for observing.So I go to my old sketches and had one of M45 for you.

Excellent observations of Jupiter and the Pleiades (M45). You have recorded a good amount of detail over Jupiter. The Pleiades observation is well done. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

nice sketch, but
itÂ´s not been the shadow of Kallisto, but the moon itself: http://www.aau.teleb...lpo6zeitenw.jpg
... when I saw the shadow of the moon Callisto on Jupiter
Kallistos shadow followed at 06:11 UT, many hours after Jupiter set in central europe.
Kallisto has a very dark surface, wherefore its often confused with its own shadow visually, when transiting Jupiter.

a german "schÃ¶n von Dir zu hÃ¶ren"
your are right ,it was Callisto not his shadow.I controlled it by my "KOSMOS Himmelsjahr" .You have made great photograph of Jupiter and Callisto.
thank you.For living in a city of 175000 people I am very happy with my observing place.There are no big light pollution near my place and in south direction the sky is okay.
You have great sketches in your Album,I like them.And you have a lot of scopes.
