Dears,

 

Cooperative weather for once last Saturday, it's so nice to be again under the starry sky, despite a negative temperature. Seeing was rather good, unfortunately I was ready to launch acquisitions late, so Uranus was already less than 35° elevation.
Nonetheless one can see the bright boreal polar zone, and the 4 brightest satellites:

Animation just for the satellites:

Clear skies,

Merci / thanks!

Indeed that animation is one of the best I did with Uranus satellites :)
