I hit very good seeing two nights ago, before the clouds came in around 1am. I made two sketches of Jupiter about 1 hour apart, this is the second, with the best seeing and the most details. About 40 minutes later oval BA came nicely into view. I observed mostly without filters, but a light yellow W12 helped from time to time.

 

July 10, New Haven (CT), 3:55UT 

L1=295, L2=319

Newton 1" f/7, 350x, seeing I.

Great looking Jupiter sketch--nice detail and colors.  I like using a filter like your #12, too.  Mine is a #11 yellow-green.

Ivano,

 

A very fine looking detailed sketch of the gas giant. 

Fine seeing.

The w12 trends toward the green too :)
