Hi all!
Here's my 3 days Jupiter sketches made on morning hours of the 22, 23 & 24th October. For the first time I could see the oval BA with a 90mm aperture telescope at 228x in moment off good seeing. A Baader M&S filter was use. It looks more darker than GRS. :jump:

Wow, you got BA with a 90mm aperture, Congrats! I could barely see it in my 6", and then only infrequently at moments of pretty steady seeing. Maybe it is darker than the GRS. Gotta observe it again.

Thanks all!
@Asbytec: I was surprise that was visibile on such small aperture, but only at moments of good seeing and like a dark orange smudge.

Thanks! Day by day I'm surprise about the capabilities of this little refractor.

These are beautiful pieces Cat. The finish is smooth and refined. Its truly a pleasure to behold your efforts. Consider downloading some jupiter templates via the jeremy perez astro site . If not there they are available elsewhere. Your fine touch reflects the fine images Im sure your scope presents.

Pete thanks for the template hint, but for now I'll sketch in a logbook and I want to finish it.
