Finally got a clear night in good seeing. At first look, I wondered how in the heck I was gonna sketch anything. Kind of clumsy in setting up and getting ready to observe and sketch. Yea, real rusty and I was wondering if I could catch anything. I just wasn't seeing much at first, rusty I guess.
The EZ was pretty tough, but some nice festoons barely showed themselves with a nice one coming around the trailing limb. After a while, some detail in the SEB began to pop with some lighter clouds and some faint festoon-like features along it's northern border. The NEB had a darker core and a few rifts. What's interesting is how much the north has changed since three weeks of overcast skies.
So, here's Jupiter's boring side on 25 Jan 1410 UT at 240x with 8mm TMB II. System I 51 and System II 64. Seeing was Ant II most of the night.
Some interesting features: first in the STrZ near the preceding edge was what I suspect is the trailing edge of BA's cloud. There did seem to be a break in that tail, or something of a white spot. The SSTeB seemed darker in patches along it's southern border. The SSTeZ was patchy as well, but stronger on the following limb. Near the STrZ trailing limb appeared to be a faint cloud feature. A very faint STB was noted.
The NTeB seemed darker along it's northern edge with a sudden northward sloping cloud feature. That seems new. In the NPR there were some interplay of light and dark features. Hard to make out. But the NTeZ seemed to end near the trailing limb. And the NNTrZ was faintly visible over most of the disc.
No ovals seen and not much white in the EZ outside of a couple of plumes.
