After my Saturn run, I fell asleep and missed the Neptune pass, but woke in time for Uranus

 

I took  points and looked at replicating what I did with Saturn for Uranus. I am hoping it came out ok.

 

its an hour worth of exposure, broken down in 5 minute stretches.

 

Used the C9.25+ 3X barlow+ ADC + ASI224MC

 

Stacked and all joined and derotated in Winjupos

Nice image, i tried to shoot Uranus for the first time few nights ago, difficult and not good because i was using my new old telescope and focusing was awful, and very small, but i did it anyway.

Peculiar color balance  - Uranus has always come out greenish with my 224MC....  incredibly sharp, though!  Nice work.
