Hi all!
Here is the lastest sketch of Jupiter, observed 2 days ago with a 3.5" refractor at 228x. On this part of Jupiter(CM~57) there were 2 large festoons, easly visble. NEB in moments of good seeing presents itself with some structure.

That's a fantastic sketch, Catalin! I like how you've drawn the festoons.

Hi Catalin,

Nice to see another of your Jupiter sketches. You certainly were able to get a good view of those festoons. I really miss observing Jupiter--thanks for posting!

You truly have this refine smoothness that's got great appeal. Save the bother of outlining the planet which is oddly oblate anyway and download a Blank off of beltofvenus.com or google Jeremy Perez, Jupiter blanks. Saves a bit of bother, allows you to concentrate more on the shading and provides a nice black backdrop.

You have a terrific finish to your work I always enjoy.


Pete

Thanks Pete! I try to render as much as realistic of what I see at the eyepice. I "avoid" to use a template because I have a logbook with all the sketches I made of Jupiter from ~10 years ago...and I just want to finish it, but I'll take your advice and I'll make some sketches with black background template.

hi Catalin,
nice sketch !
You saw really several dark projetions at the NEBs.
I found them at my last sessions too.
There goes something to change in that region.

Bye Christian

Beautiful sketch, Catalin! And I agree with the others that the softness of the image and especially those festoons are wonderful. You've got a keen eye!

Peter
