Who says that spring's only about galaxies and globulars? What about this little treasure, hidden all alone in one of the least fashionable parts of the sky... the mighty Ghost of Jupiter? Due to reasons already explained I couldn't push my scope further than 206x and there was a quarter moon around. But nevertheless the core structures leapt out at me, even without the use of a filter. I couldn't see the central star though...

Peter,

Great Sketch. Especially with a Quarter Moon. Nice work I feel like I am peering through your binoviewer.
