Had a great night with Jupiter in 9/10 seeing, again. Also, 52 Orionis was so pretty, cleanly split bright dots of light with a steady figure 8 Airy pattern. Just amazingly beautiful.
Jupiter was, again, nothing less that stunning for me as it has been for others. The NEB is ripe with bright rifts and long thin festoons. I tried to convey the pencil tin nature of the festoons. I am not sure if there was one emanating from the larger feature near the meridian (with a distinct bright feature just preceding it), but there might have been a very faint one. The EQ belt encroaching from the preceding limb almost appeared bent southward.
Earlier, the NTrZ had a more of a ruddy hue to it, but that might have faded a bit.
The normally bland and difficult SEB (minus the GRS and wake) showed itself quite nicely. There seemed to be a dark "core" running it's length with a darker central feature. I did not see any of the brighter distinct wake features at sys I ~190, but I could just barely make out some molted appearance along the north and south SEB. The southern molting appeared a bit more prominent and extended a greater distance along the SEB. Noticing this level of SEB tone was a first for me, one of a few this year.
The Southern belts and zones were pretty nice. One very bright zone, south temperate I believe, was clearly evident. And I thought I could just make out two thin southern temperate belts. Quite beautiful.
Not much in the northern temperate zones, except hints of some faint banding and maybe a darker feature as shown. And the NTB had some of it's darker features with darker knots that do appear to reach upward a tiny bit. Plus, I did notice some lighter feature in the NTB, as well.
One feature I have been remiss in sketching is the limb darkening. It does appear more prominent on the preceding lime. I will take note of it more often.
All in all, great night pushing myself, my scope, and the conditions for everything I can get from them. Thanks for sharing.
