Planet Uranus 9th November, 203mm classical cassegrain F12 GSO/TS.
Sky conditions good
T5/6 (means magnitude 5 was visible on the area of interest),
Seeing 7/10 on good moments (airy disk of a m4 star clearly defined with the 1st diffraction ring undulating),
Magnifications 345x and 385x. 345x was the best conditions for drawing the planet disk.
Satellite Oberon was clearly defined helping the firm confirmation of the planet orientation.
Brightenings were noted into the equatorial streak noted (1) and (2), Brightening (1) was confirmed by Mr Melilo.
A darker pôle was there bordered by a clear band then a temperate band of similar albedo than the pôle, the said clear streak on equator then the south hemisphere darker, the darkest feature on the surface disk.
Globally the planet brightness seemed brighter than noted a month and a half before now, the contrast features on a noticeable contrast improvement.
Brightenings and the darker north pôle presence are the main topics of interest here.
