 At below, you will see my latest images of Uranus at the highest
resolution as possible with the C8 telescope on Oct. 4th UT.
These are my best images so far. Nearly all of them show a possible
equatorial band running north and south directions.
But here are the top four best shots. Very little processing were
made to bring these images out.

 I'm not 100% sure of my images yet if they are real or not.
So, I am not confirming anything.  But Uranus may show the possible
reoccurrence of the belts and zones at vertically as we heading for
the edge-on presentation just a few years away.

 I will take more images and possible from others to confirm it..
