Oh yes, very nice sketch. Finally you got a clear night.
How about that Jupiter, really putting on a fine show.

Excellent work. The disturbed NEB is well shown here. Those darker areas on the southern edge of the NEB are festoon bases no? Nice clean presentation. The STB trailing off is nicely done too.
It's been a wild season.

Nice work on this Jupiter sketch. The SEB is truly a sight and as Pete mentioned, you captured the very prominent South Temperate Belt (STB) nicely. That is quite a bay in the southern edge of the NEB, too.

That's right. They look really blue/grey to me. Maybe I sketched them a little to dark.

nice sketch, and no clouds over B ?
you got the new BAR inside the NEBn at ~ 240° !

Thanks all for the nice words. But when I see some of your sketches there still must be some more detail to catch with my 30 cm...
Well, Belgium isn't really renowned for its excellent seeing so in order to get more detail you'd have to be lucky. I didn't see much more with my 18" when I made my Jupiter drawing, but then again that was on a night with bad seeing as well.
