Here's an observation I made of Uranus on the 29th September. The disk was fairly uniform in brightness- the EZ seems to be the same intensity as the rest of the disk. There was a subtle darkening in the southern hemisphere.

An excellent observation of Uranus. It is not unusual that the bright zone over the equator may have diminished in intensity considering that Uranus has a dynamic atmosphere and has exhibited changes over time (as imaged by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and amateurs around the world). It will be interesting to compare your excellent observation with that of other observers. Thank you for sharing it with us all.
