Last night I got my first glimpse of Jupiter in 3 weeks. I gotta say, wow, a lot going on. I was doing some double star work, but took a gander and was just impressed with the activity in the EZ and NEB.

The EZ was alive with prominent features, big bold lumps of the EQ belt and a huge, blistering festoon preceding the GRS. The NEB appeared tortured and fractured with a few rifts and darker features. It just had a ragged appearance.

It's time to set up, alright.

Summer sees some truly good ever memorable seeing and winter generally has great clarity but the seeing for that half of the year is a challenge to say the least. I have gotten 8/10 in winter - on Mars where it counts - but that's - for me anyway - exceedingly rare in the cold temps.
G-bless your sky's though, that's a wonderful map!

Yeah, last night when I looked up at the sky and I saw the proximity of Jupiter and the moon I just had to break out my SV102ED and take a look. Seeing was supposed to be very good, but I'd just call it average. But that was OK, because I just wanted to enjoy the combined view of the moon and Jupiter. I'd say they were perhaps 45' apart. They were framed nicely in my ES 20 100.

I watched the moon and Jupiter last night with my 6-inch and a 24mm ES 82 degree eyepiece. In spite of the thin clouds I got a nice view of them in the same field of view. Now it's colder and clear tonight.

A 20 ES100 in my WO ZS-110 for 40X gave me the best view. I could see a fair amount of detail on Jupiter. David
