12" (30.5cm) Meade SCT.
Filters: W#21 Filter/Unfiltered.
Seeing generally good (5-9.)
Transparency excellent (5.0mag), increasing mist/haze later.
No wind. Initally no dew, increasing to heavy later.
Altitude: 30 degs.
Observation comments: Fairly long periods of stable seeing allowed detailed views. The SSTB appeared
dark at the f. side and faded at the p. side (as has been confirmed in images with a faded sector of SSTB
in this area.) The STB appeared broken into 2 long dark segments, the p. one being the longer. The GRS
was visible toward the p. limb, looking a pale orange hue, seperated from the SEBs by a bright area. The
SEBs was dark, as was the SEBn with a bright SEBZ seperating them.
The NEB appeared very dark and broad, with a distinct bay feature on the NEBs. Also a dark barge was
seen f. this feature. A short segment of NNTB was well defined. The SEBs and NEB were the darkest
belts, both appearing brick red.
