First was the brilliant blue festoon. First one I've seen in a while. Then the rift we have seen more than a few times rolled toward the preceding edge, and another one rolled into view. There were some softer features between the rifts. Okay, that just begged for a sketch to share with you all.
About a half hour later, 1522UT on 19 Nov, Io slowly dimmed into the black of space. Seemed to take about a minute to disappear. Kind of neat.
Pete, I did observe Callisto at 380x, but could only see a faint, eh...call it beaver. Yes, beaver is a color.
It looked a bit like Uranus in that the color seemed to roll slightly even in perfect 10/10 seeing that night. Ganymede, no real variations of note, either.
On Jupiter, I really tried to bring out the soft features in the North. In the south, the belts were a little stronger. In fact, I got the impression there were really two belts in the STB as shown. And a prominent white one further south. The STB did have an abrupt break in it near the trailing limb. A white oval maybe?
The SPR seems darker, maybe giving the SPR a two toned appearance (as Pete mentioned during his observation.) So far, I have not seen much darkening in the NPR. I hope the limb shading turned out okay.
The NTB was giving that fine "eyeliner" look, again, with some fine, darker feature topping it off. Oh, and the NTZ was definitely grey! It was not white, like the STrZ, but sure enough grey. I thought that was beautiful.
One last comment, what eye do you observe with? I am left eye dominate, but observe with the right eye. The dominate eye did seem tad better. Gotta use it more often, other than for sighting a billiard shot.
Thanks for looking. Sys ~300, seeing 9 to 10/10, Trans Mag 5. UO 12mm HD Ortho at 164x. No filter.
