Sure now it's better again, it's not so unfrequent here, but humidity is too much this evening.

I live just out of the city near the sea. It was a paradise here 11 years ago. It has not been ruined for the time that has passed, it has been ruined in just a week after I came living here...one morning I've found that the road in front of my house was become 10meters larger than before and they were building a new supermarket 500meters away

Sincerly my friend, this Jupiter's sketch is in my top three favorite of all sketches I have seen before. Man you have a very nice talent. Beautiful rendition and details.

I have been on another project, but still peek at Jupiter form time to time.

After my first sketches at the Sun, and having the scope already out from this morning, here is my first attempt at Jupiter.
First attempt at Jupiter? Are you kidding me? This an awesome and very realistic sketch. I know that template, by the way... eh eh. In case you did some color and intensity estimates as well, I think Gianluigi Adamoli will be happy to get a copy of your report.

I will give Jupiter another try this evening, as I've seen the GRS is approaching.
I'll try to make some intensity estimates too, as I feel that all this is making me a better observer but do not expect too much precision on this side at this moment.
Clear skies to you all.

Really Ivano, I'm not so bad with drawing in general but I think it's too early for colors yet. Anyway I'm very sensitive to low contrast details but am also completely blind to colors in low light conditions.
You may need a bigger telescope then
Seriously, the one you have must be very good. Clear skies,

Very fine observational sketch. I like the way you rendered the detail on the south edge of the North Equatorial Belt extending into the Equatorial Zone. It looks like you also spotted a couple of ovals way down south. Looking forward to your next sketch. Sadly, winter weather here precludes any scope time--especially planetary observing.
