Festoons or barges, who saw what on Jupiter last night?

26 posts in this topic

I had for a season a TeleVue Planetary filter, in use the colour rendition would vary between a shocking salmon pink to a more aesthetically pleasing ochre tone.  Some planetary features did appear to be enhanced through contrast, such as within the South Temperate Belt. I do not recall if refined detailing such as white ovals benefitted and there is the opinion by dedicated planetary observers that filtered use on Jupiter will diminish and reduce visually finer detailing. When they are apparent, steady seeing and high power is the best combination for revealing white ovals and as is often mentioned the more you look the more you see, which becomes particularly relevant for catching those periods of stable seeing conditions.
