Jupiter – 3 April 2015

Object Name: Jupiter
Object Type: planet
Location: Penalver (Spain)
Date: 3-4-2015
Media: graphite pencil on white paper, captured with digital camera and processed with Gimp.

Hi This is a sketch of the planet Jupiter made throught my 6” achromatic refractor (TS Individual 152/900), binoviewer, a pair of 8 mm eyepieces and glasspath that gave me 293x. The seeing was very good during all the observation, allthought the arriving of high clouds at 01:00 am ended with the fun.

It was remarcable the wedge that seems to divide the NEB and a bright patch between this belt and NTB that reminds a great oval.

I hope you to enjoy with this sketch.

  1. David,

    Fantastic detail in your Jupiter sketch. I have heard the binoviewers made for an almost 3D expereince through the eyepice. Your Jupiter looks as if I could touch it! Nice work.


  2. Thank you very much for your comment Cindy!

    Since I purchased the binoviewer I can´t do a planetary observation without it. The view with both eyes is more relaxing and efective.

    Kind regards.
