later the seeing was better, and I saw the NNTB.
The month before it was invisible.

18:45 UT, 10" Dobson f/6 , Bino V 235x
I 328° II 344°

The Rift inside the NEB at begining NEBn ~ 312° is interesting.

Very nice sketches, Christian, and a lot of detail. Clearly you've had a reasonably good seeing.

My compliments,

Peter

Christian,

Two very nice additional sketches to your files.
It is nice to get some breaks in the cloud cover that winter can give us in the northlands.

Frank :)

Christian, another wonderful observation. My apologies (to all), been busy with other subjects and barely keeping up with Jupiter and your sketches.

Ah! You captured that belt in the NTZ. I've seen fragments of it weeks ago. Maybe it's progressing. Well done.

Very nice and informative sketches, Christian. Still waiting for the clouds to get out of the way here in Montreal.

Thanks for sharing.

Christian,

Great sketches of Jupiter. Very detailed drawings. The rifting in the NEB is well rendered, but for that matter everything is.
