Quote:Now, you're talking, David. Okay, you managed so much more this time, I am happy for you. Look at the undulating NEB and the range of festooning from prominent to softer. You captured the dark "spine" of the SEB, too, and the trailing wake. I like the patchy thin cloud streaking across the NTB, too. And that feature in the south near the trailing limb, not familiar with it...gonna go have a look. It looks interesting. Maybe BA coming around? It has a drooping cloud feature south if it, much like you show. So, maybe...Well done, sir. David, with this sketch I can tell you had a great night. That's so cool...no need to move. Edit: NOPE! Not BA. What you captured are that formation of three ovals coming around the limb. They are just unresolved that far from the meridian and separating the darker cloud they are embedded in. Did you wait for them to come around?Check out this image by Michel Jacquesson (203mm SC) about half way down the page.
