About this image

This is a 'quick' sketch from the 14th June 2018 when good seeing conditions made for about the best view of Jupiter I've ever had. There was more detail to be seen than I could record in time.

See the image for miscellaneous quick notes on the sketch. To those appearing in the image I should add the following: STB thicker and more southerly to E of GRS, and EZ very busy with equatorial line.

Extra note: image updated with corrected date and longitudes - never fail to write down the date of the observation and have to work it out later: a school boy error!
