I hope you all enjoyed the 2000 New Year. I express also my sincere thanks to those who sent me precious planetary images last year.
Attached find please a set of my Jovian images taken from September to December 1999. I began to use a Japanese made methane-band filter（893-897nm with a width 1/2 lamda＝6.5nm）. I think these images show the area where BE and FA are just joining.
I produced an image of Mars on 28 December, which will be reviewed in CMO 227 (coming issue).
I hope you also keep me informed of your work on Jupiter and other planets.
With kind regards,
