Back to some basic planetary sketching

Seeing conditions were good (7/10) using a 25mm plossl eyepiece.

Both the SEB and NEB were prominent, with equal cloud activity in both bands. Darker areas were seen in in both SEB and NEB but no particular detail was detectable due to low power used.

Faint greyish festoons were seen connected to the boundary of the NEB and extended into the NNEB. No features were detected in the EZ.

Below is the intensity sketch produced, based on the visual observation.
