In my last post I reported a good view of Jupiter.  It was rather brief.

This evening is very clear and a couple of hours ago I set up the same telescope again for another, longer look at Jupiter.

I focussed on Jupiter, and what I saw was a white disc, covered with black blobs and some black streaks.  Nothing I could do would change this.

Telescope is a Skywatcher Star Travel 102mm Refractor.  Focal length is 500mm and I was using a 20mm eyepiece giving x25 magnification.

Has anyone had this experience and can anyone explain it ?
