'Third attempt to post....
Well, hey, everyone’s doing it, so I thought why not me too! I made yet another attempt to portray the GRS, what with with Jupiter filling a good amount of my FOV this opposition. Plenty of cloud detail with details in the accompanying sketch made using blue and yellow filters. For me the GRS itself remains defined more by what’s swirling around and behind it. Any attempt to spot coloration in the darned thing remained elusive. The sharp eyed amongst you will have noticed that my drawing is not synoptic, ‘cuz in got distracted by Ganymede off the p –limb closing in for an occultation. Had fun watching the moon close – as for the GRS, well, Meh!
