here's a 'widefield sketch' of jupiter near opposition. seeing was average to good, i think a better view could be obtained if my scope was more cooled down, but the image was quite nice anyway. i used the 12" dob with the apodizing mask, which seems to be helpfull.

(from now you can find my sketches on this little website i made. i was gonna run out of free space here on the CN gallery soon )

(edit: i linked the image because it's size was too big)

Kris,

An outstanding observation of Jupiter and the Galilean satellites. You have captured much detail over Jupiter. The South South Temperate Belt (SSTB) region is complex. The North Equatorial Belt (NEB) displays much complex detail as well, including the elongated bright rift. Thank you for sharing this fine observation with us all.

Carlos

That's a long time ago. It's very nice to see all your sketches on your website. A lot of them I saw for the first time.
BTW: that's a lot of detail for a "widefield" sketch.

thanks for the replies everyone! i haven't got much time lately, so i can't comment on all of the beautiful sketches here lately, but i do follow. It feels like a long time since i've seen so much activity and sketches posted here!

jef, i first observed jupiter in as much detail as i could, and then simply added the satellites to produce a 'widefield' sketch

I like the site. It's easy to see how your skill in sketching progresses over the years. Am wondering if the kitty in the pic of the Helios on the equipment page is considered essential stargazing paraphernalia. Astrocat, lol.
