Greetings all,

please finad attached a drawing of Jupiter I made last night.  Seeing conditions were rather good- indeed we've had a good spell recently of clear nights combined with good seeing.  The skies were a little hazy as is so often the case in times of good planetary observation. Points of interest include:

 

    The STB appears to be quite broad at these longitudes
    STropB visible, a slightly darker marking was present in the STropB close to the STB near the CM.
    SEB broad with some darker sections.
    NEB rather active containing numerous irregular lighter sections
    NTB hard to see, a small darker section present on the prec. side to about the CM.
    NTZ only seems to be clearly defined on the prec. side of the disk just before the CM.
    NNTB present byt irregular.

 

Best wishes,
-Paul
