Seanie,
Don't let me on my own here! C'mon, post a few! I'd be interested to see them.

How much are they worth to you Micahel?

My hats off to you. I cant even draw a line. It's interesting to compare your sketch to my image of the same event!

Dave,
I was very intrested to see your our picture and spent quite a while comparing it to my sketch. Dave' picture
It is always interesting to see if what you thought you see reflects the reality. I had never noticed a streak off southern edge of the GRS before and was slow to convince myself of what I saw. Then I saw it and the festoon on the NEB on your image taken a little later on the same night.

MJS,
Thats a great drawing, how long did it take you ?
I remember seeing Mars and Jupiter in your Dob a while back and I have to say that it was one of the best images I've ever seen on the planets, your drawing reflects that.

David,
I find that with Jupiter you have to work quickly. So I first do the positions of the main features and anything I notice on the main belts. Then I try to work accross each belt quickly to get the finer details. Finally I work twoards the poles. Usually it is better to stop after 10 minutes and start another.

MJS and All,
Not having the patence for sketching, I went ahead and got another pic of Jupiter on May 8th.
Note Io on the limb and the GRS on the lower left hand side of the globe.



Incase you cant see it , its at
homepage.eircom.net/%7Esac/graphics/jupiter/jup11.jpg

I tried imaging Saturn that night also, but it was too near the horison, I wasnt able to get a decent picture.
This was a bit of a wake up call for me, I know the planets will be gone soon, but that time is nearly here !! :shock: , time is going by so quickly.
