5th April Jupiter

Was observing Jupiter with my 12.5" dob. Seeing was really fantastic and I must say I had one of the best views of Jupiter. Razor sharp image, steady view at 300x and Jupiter was feature galore. The GRS was visible, there were two large blue festoons, the SEB had a split in the band, and south of it were multiple white oval stream! The white ovals were like queuing up! Awesome.

I miss the place where stars shine bright, to gaze upwards in awe of the sight

Ha yup. Simple way of capturing what I observed, without having to spend on imaging equipment. Since I am primary visual observer and have very limited time to observe, the simpler the tools, the better for me.
