Greetings all,

Atatched is a quater rotation of Jupiter I made on the 9th January. We had some good seeing here for a few hours and I was able to make the attached strip drawing along with a drawing of a prominent rift which appears to start around CM2: 232 degrees. The planet was examined in a number of filters W#25A, 47,58 and 80A, and an intensity set was made.

Best wishes,
-Paul.
