Jupiter Dec 6, 2012

It's been several months since I posted here. I recently did this sketch of Jupiter's 'boring' side using my AT72ED and binoviewer from my home in Miami, Florida. That night the conditions were very good. Other than the NEB being a bit too pronounced and ruddy, and the NPC being a bit too yellow, it's pretty much what I observed at the eyepiece. The colors are there, just very subtle. The light areas of the planet are a bit off white, the SEB brownish, and the SPC has a hint of blue. There is also a bit of shading at the terminator. NOTE: The eyepieces were Astro-Tech, not Celestron as noted on the sketch.
