Here is a report of uranus performed last 8th november with the CC154 F12 Under average good images and 324x magnification.

Heavy moisture on the night with a moonlight a little interfering during the session.

Anyway, still a relative dark pôle, the clear band zone near/close to the equator was full relative brighter.

This report can be compared with the 21st october report where this clear band was only a segment (CM214° to CM169°).

Nothing more with regards to the means in use and the sky conditions.

Have good read of the present post

Faithfully, Stanislas-Jean.

Thanks Martin, Tom, Frank, for your kind words, gents for their likes too.

Also happy to see Chrisnutall at the same date and time reporting the same uranian pattern and the dark pôle (a forum here above).

Not easy to approach uranus on the period having clear skies but with so tremedous seeing.

The 1st year we have so poor conditions here.

Was a little Lucky for these 2 nights of relative stable images into a 150mm only.

Good skies to all.

Stanislas-Jean

Thanks a lot Michel for your words.

Should be interresting to follow such but weather is not cooperating.

Foracast weather for winter here is not good being stated heavy rainy and cloudy mostly.

Next year I will be located south of France near Fréjus, this will help somewhere.

Good skies.

Stanislas-Jean

Here is a report of uranus performed last 20th november with 150mm apertures.
Average to almost good images were met Under 324 and 362x magnifications.
Still the similar banding pattern catched last 8th.
However a variability was captured on the temperate band north, its move was revealed after 3H of planet rotation.
Still a dark pôle but may be fainter.
Indeed the contrasts are considerably enhanced for drawing.

Good skies.

Stanislas-Jean
