Greatings all!

Here's three disk drawings I made last night. We had some very good seeing and the details on Jupiter's disk were simply stunning!

Paul,

An outstanding series of Jupiter observations. The first observation made at 22:01 U.T. shows the Great Red Spot (GRS) very nicely (bright core with darkened rim) and Oval BA. Many large and bright ovals are noted over the South Polar Region (SPR). The North Equatorial Belt (NEB) displays many intertwining bright rifts. with blue festoons along it's southern border. You have recorded the bead-like dark condensations over the South Temperate Belt (STB) similar to my own observations of the region.

The observation at 22:59 U.T. shows the same but the SSTb-STB dark complexes are more prominent. The SPR bright ovals are prominent as well. A bright oval is noted over the North Polar Region (NPR).

The 00:14 U.T. observation displays fine detail over the SSTB-STB region, especially preceding the CM. A prominent blue festoon is visible over the EZ. Several bright rifts over the NEB. Dark condensations over the STB-SPR.

Thank you for sharing them with us all. I look forward to your future observations.

Carlos

Your drawings are as stunning as was your view of Jupiter.
Excellent you were able to get 3 drawings in and all complimentary.

Beautiful work! This are rather "paintings" than "sketches"...
