Looks like you picked up a lot of features in this great quick sketch of yours.
Oval BA, GRS, turbulence following the GRS, the STB and the SSTB. And down below in the NEB on the south border some dark bases. Too bad clouds came in since you were having great seeing.

In all it's simplicity, this rudimentary sketch hints at what was seen at the eyepiece. I was surprised by the amount of detail after only a 1/2 hour of cooling down. Seeing at moments was fantastic with the details then seen rivaling those in the best pictures seen elsewhere on the planetary imaging forum.
I was very excited at the eyepieces and look forward to some clearer nights in the near future with even longer lasting better seeing
