I was waiting for acceptable sky for several weeks. Today I had the chance to see Jupiter for 2 hours. Then clouds again. The air was steady but there were high thin clouds which reduced the contrast.

I did not see too much detail in the NEB. Except the shadow of Europa I saw a dark structure in the SEB, which should be a sign of its recurrence. This structure makes the sketch valuable for me.

The instrument was my 6 inch Mak, I used 144x and 180x. North is up (of course) the image is mirror reversed.

Uwe,

An excellent observation of Jupiter. You have recorded a good amount of detail over the planet as well as the shadow of Europa. I will be posting a similar observation of Jupiter soon. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Uwe,

Excellent sketching and your seeing must have been better than average to catch all that detail I see in your fine rendering.

Frank

Uwe,

Nice work--Jupiter is hard to resist right now, but the weather and seeing seldom cooperate.
