Last night's planetary sketch of Jupiter. 22h00m UT Antoniadi II/III Skywatcher 90mm Maksutov x125It was great to be outside last evening under the stars. Even better to be able to grab a decent sketch of the planet Jupiter, with the added bonus of capturing the Great Red spot.90mm Maksutov telescopeThat "mighty" Maksutov 90mm telescope is able to deliver great views of the planetary features, and considering its small aperture, I'm well pleased with the final results. This little scope, so far; has returned some lovely images of double stars, craters of the Moon and now I find that Jupiter is also holding up well... I hope Mars is as good in July.
