Norme,

Excellent sketch of Jupiter. I do like the colors used in this sketch. Congratulations on seeing LRS and WSZ. I haven't seen them since last year so I'm looking forward to finding them. I'm guessing on the sketch that the GRS is too far on the limb. Is that what you were referring to in your edit?.
Anyway another great sketch. You've been posting Jupiter sketches left and right. It's good that the seeing been cooperative and great.

Happy Holidays. Dean

I forgot about that. I think that faint white oval in the south is on the other side of that darker spot and that darker cloud coming around the trailing limb in the north seems a bit to far placed from where images show it. Oh well.

Hey, congrats on both LRS and WSZ. This is my first time with LRS and second, I think, with WSZ.

Norme,

I wouldn't know about those fine details since I haven't seen such small features lately with the seeing. I thought for sure you were referring to GRS in your edit. Sorry about that. Your sketches are awesome.

Last year WSZ and LRS were pretty easy to see. It remains to be seen if I can view them again.

Boys, thank you. I hope you get some great views, too. It might finally clear tonight. :)

Dean, yea, the GRS was there at sketch start time. As you know, it wasn't there an hour later. Maybe it's all to easy to misplace smaller details. Good luck with the finer stuff.
