I posted this sketch already in the forum on planetary observations. Jupiter observed at Stellafane on August 19, with the 10" R-C f/15 in the Dome observatory; 8:20ut, 254x, no filters.

Cheers,

Ivano

Very fine work, Ivano! It has been a while since I observed my old friend Jup. The time has come now!

Thanks for posting.

Excellent sketch of Jupiter. Your sketch reminds me of those made L.F. Ball.

Ivano,

Very nice sketching and in color making it even more attractive and closer to the eyepiece view.

Frank :)
