Tips for Observing Jupiter

Tips on Observing Jupiter

My TV-102 Light Cup has put together a collection of tips, guides, etc. to help new observers with Jupiter and Saturn. I seemed to
recall not too long ago when I first started observing Jupiter and could sure enough see both bands easily. However, I couldn't even
tell the difference between the NEB and SEB . The GRS wasn't the GRS at all but the GRS Hollow and it would be sometime
afterward before I actually saw the "Great Pale Spot". I hope you find the collections useful as I myself still have a life-long learning
on Jupiter to do .
