Dear observers,

today I had the chance to sketch Jupiter again. I used my 6 inch Maksutav @180x and 144x. The image is mirror-reversed.

To northern region of the planet looked blueish, but the southern part brownly. The NEB was neutral grey.

Uwe,

An excellent observation of Jupiter. You have captured detail over the North Equatorial Belt (NEB). Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Uwe,

Very well done. Jupiter is putting on a fine show when the seeing cooperates. It is nice to see your take on the big orb.

Frank :)
