Home Forums Jupiter Why do we still show the images upside down? I don’t have a view on

I don’t have a view on whether planetary observers should have north or south up but I do wish that they would be consistent. When I’m doing Sky Notes I either have to have some slides with the original caption text upside down or the planet just flips back and forth in an irritating way.

Don’t get me started on the random orientations and even mirror imaged views that you see for Deep Sky objects (and also comets if truth be told).
