Jeremy,

Thank you for the compliment on my Jupiter and Ganymede observations. I am glad that you have enjoyed them. Ganymede was a real treat for me. The best of luck in your own observations.

Carlos

Bill and Marc,

Thank you for the kind compliments on my Jupiter and Ganymede observations. It was special night to be able to see so much detail over Jupiter and especially Ganymede. I hope that we can all obtain excellent views of Jupiter soon.

Bill- I do not know if I wold have seen more using the Ball Lens?

The best of luck in your own observations of Jupiter.

Carlos

Always hard to tell the exact situations when it will pull far ahead. I know on Mars it was much better most all of the times. I've not given it much use on Jupitter yet so don't know. I've been using the bino for Jupiter most of this season so keep forgetting about the ball lens. Was out last eveing and it really was quite clear and steady so would have been a great opportunity, but when I brought all the equipment in around 2:30am I saw the ball lens sitting on the shelf and could have kicked myself for forgetting

btw - by that time in the morning Orion was up so in addition to a great evening for Jupiter got my first look for the season at M42....niiiiiiice!

Dweller,

Thank you for the compliment on my Jupiter and Ganymede observation. The best of luck in your own observations.

Bill- I am glad that you got a good view of Jupiter and the Orion Nebula (M42). With the seeing that I experienced the majority of quality eyepieces would have been useful. The best of luck in your future observations. I hope to see some of them on the forum.

Carlos

Wow Carlos, fantastic drawing of Jupiter and Ganymede! Certainly you had excellent observing conditions but you did an amazing job of capturing the detail you saw. Planetary sketches always look so much better in color and you're a master at this - I need to find a good way to do this myself.

Bravo!

Howard

Howard,

Thank you for the compliment on my Jupiter and Ganymede observations. Planetary sketches are not easy but practice will improve your renderings and make you a better (more critical) observer, in my opinion.

Using your 28-inch Newtonian you should be able to see the cracks on Europa!

Carlos
