We had very good seeing conditions last night and as Jupiter gained altitude the seeing got better and better.
My son and his family were in for Thanksgiving, so after the big feed we went down to the observatory. We looked at Luna for a while as Jupiter was rising and then turned the scope on the King. Seeing was so good that they could all see the GRS (which appeared as a moderately saturated salmon color) without any problem.
After they tired of Jupiter, I pointed out constellations and objects with my laser pointer and told the tales associated with them until they got cold and went back to the house.
I immediately put the scope back on Jupiter and was astonished by the seeing. I went to 391x (!) with no problem. Thia almost never happens here in Appalachia.
Naturally, all my sketching materials were up at the house. I was afraid to go get them, fearing that the unprecedented seeing would go away and I would be left to kick myself (repeatedly). So I made a quick field sketch on scrap paper to lock all the features down on paper and used that to make a finished sketch today after the company had gone home.
The finished drawing was done on Strathmore paper with 2B, HB, and 3H pencils. Gamma adjusted slightly and flipped digitally after scanning.
I am very thankful that my family came to visit and for the seeing.
