While we're in that area, something keeps tickling the retina down there in that vast grey zone. At first, I thought it might have been some elusive white ovals. But, they are further north. I really cannot make out what it is, just something ill defined and barely, vaguely peeking into view. It appeared to be set off by a very faint belt that I saw, or thought I saw, only a few times. Wanna explore that region some more.
Probably the most striking feature is in the EQ zone. Really, it almost looked like a festoon blowing the wrong way. At other times, there seemed to be two branches stemming from that festoon on the meridian into the EQ belt.
The NED was bordered by plenty of deep blue festoons. It was punctured by a fairly prominent rift and by some weaker albedo toward the trailing limb.
Actually, the NTB was the most beautiful as I have seen it in a while. A very thin wavy line topped it off near the preceding limb. Those gave way to what looked like broader, more bold features. There may have been a hint of a belt in the NNTB. Still, no NPR visible, but some definite SPR was evident.
Also there is a little something going on along the southern edge of the SEB near the preceding limb. I think I had seen that feature before, along with Michael, but it looked to be a bit different this time.
Jupiter near the Zenith on 22 Nov at 1500UT. Ant II. Sys I 53, II 99.
Oh, this night I spent most of the observation at 40x/in (240x) using 8MM TMB II, no Barlow, no filter. The rest of the observation at 170x with UO 10mm Ortho and 2x Barlow. The image was a bit soft at this higher magnification. However, most of what could be seen at 170x was still there.
Welp, posting and crossing my fingers it's at least partly accurate. I went as deep as I could go last night. I did not de-saturate the colors. They were a bit more vivid last night, so I left them alone.
Cheers, and a belated Happy Thanksgiving for those who celebrated the holiday.
