hi all,
a had luck !
I stood at the
VdS holiday observatory - Kircheim/Thüringen
I used first the TAK 130/1000mm with my Tele Vue Zoom 3-6mm at 200x. At the beginning several thin cloud moved in front of Jupiter so the image was dark in the 5"er.
Now I changed on the Schiefspiegler 250/5000mm. With my bino and WW 20mm I had 250x. It was perfect.
Jupiter walked higher and shadow for shadow moved over Jupiters cloudy atmosphere. Shadow IV was very big and not perfectly round !
The seeing was not good so I could not see some details.
Here are two results:

a) 4:45 UT I 37° II 133° U 4

Bye
Christian




250/

I & II beside Jupiter.

Christian, very good and very detailed drawing!

I was also lucky with weather and had a very good seeing. Here is my sketch, made using my 120mm refractor. Callisto's shadow was big and a bit fuzzy, contrasting to the other two shadows, which were tiny and sharp.

Regards,

hi Diego,

thank´s a lot, but I find Your sketch very great too !
I feel that at Your posession Jupiter stands some degree higher with better seeing.
Here at the observatory/ Thuringia the seeing is mostly bad...

Bye Christian
