Yes, Titania is just below Uranus in my sketch. It was a difficult averted vision object because of the moon and light pollution. I didn't see Oberon, but I'm sure it's within range. I'll have to try again in better conditions.
Joel, Titania is definitely possible with an 8 inch, but it may be better to try without a bright moon in the sky.

Excellent observations of Jupiter, Uranus, and Jupiter and it's satellites/Uranus. You have recorded a good amount of detail over Jupiter. A very accurate rendering of the appearance of Uranus in the eyepiece. A very nice capture of Jupiter (with satellites) and Uranus in the same eyepiece field. Thank you for sharing them with us all.
