Festoons don't seem to have that distinct blue, not as much. Getting harder to tell where the blue ends and the ruddy belt begins.
More later, it's late. Thanks for looking.

Jeff, thank you.
Jason, razz away, I deserve every word.
Yea, sorry, left that off. Jupiter was in 9/10 seeing. Trans about mag 5.
To me, the festoons are becoming harder to see as distinctly blue. When they mix with the NEB, it's even more difficult to see what color they are. So, I've tried to tone down the bright blue to match. Well, until tonight, Jupiter was in 10/10 seeing. Swear, dude. One wonderful, distinct blue festoon was seen reaching for the SEB. Awesome. Sketch coming...just cannot put the sketch pad away.
I think the ruddy browns in the sketch are a bit too saturated. They need to come down a bit. But, tonight there were definite hues seen...but still not quite distinct as sketched above.
Also, gave my left, dominate eye a chance to see Jupiter. You know, maybe should use that eye more often. It might be just slightly better, but maybe a bit less sensitive to color. Is that possible?
