Jupiter: Half Rotation Map

Recommended Posts

Greetings all,

The sky cleared here last night and produced some good seeing for some time. As a result, I observed the planet from 2012UT to 0305UT and was able to produce the attached half rotation map. I was rather surprised by how prominent Oval BA was, and the dark section of the STropB which seems to touch the GRS. Some fascinating structres in both the SEB and NEB.

Best wishes,

The first time I have seen a Half Rotation Map of any kind, for what it's worth liking the whole image

Wow. Marvelous sketch, thanks for sharing. Do you have your scope on a guided mount? And which eyepieces do you use for 250x and 312x? Thanks again.
