hi all,
I found a whole in the clouds !
But the active chimneys and veil clouds
drob down the details.
Bad seeing ...
It was an interesting view with some news:

25.1.2013, 18:40 UT, I 218° II 134°, -8°C :twitch:
10" Dobson f/6, V 235x Binoansatz

The litte "fast" shadow from moon
Europa was seen.
I found new some dark BAR in the NEBs region.
They push clouds in the EZ.
The BA stood now at II ~ 136°.
In the SEB is a round big white spot!
I measured him at II 146°.
Later I saw the GRS transit. He stood at II 190.5°.

Bye Christian

Christian,

Great sketch--you did a lot with "bad" seeing. :) Thanks for timing the transits of those features. That will help me to look for them if the clouds ever go away here.

Very nice sketch indeed, Christian. And I agree with Michael... if this was made with "bad" seeing, I surely look forward to what you can do with "good" seeing! :grin: Excellent work!!!

Wow, has the BA and the "mini" BA pair really traveled that far away from the GRS already?!? Fantastic sketch for such conditions, Christian. When it's that cold my shaking pretty much renders my sketch useless.

Fine sketch with a lot of detail! What is that "thing" at the north polar region?

it`s not a new detail :o -
sorry, the paper got a wet drop, the gum damaged the paper.
I don´t make the work to take a new one...

Bye
