I finally got around to posting this sketch of mine. The night had good seeing and I was able to use 208x. Usually I get to 171x and no higher. Anyway the prominent feature on this side was the rifting in the NEB. On the south border of the NEB there were festoon bases observed as well, but these were smaller than others I've seen. Because of the magnification a good view of the NTB was had. Subtle festoons were visible across the EQZ. The SEB was darker on the border to the EQZ like the NEB. The NNTB and SSTB were seen on the border of their respective polar regions.
This sketch was made at 10pm local time but I've found on many nights the seeing is better earlier. Jupiter is high in the sky at twilight and thats a great time to see it here when my work schedule allows.
Clear and steady skies. Dean
