I am trying to confirm a recent observation of the planet Uranus which was made on July 13th, 
and my contain some surface detail in the form of belt activity/visibility. 
The attached image was taken with a 12.5" f/5 reflector on July 13th, 15:25 UTC .
Ideally, it would be great to be able to receive some type of confirmation that the detail 
visible is real, or vice versa, that in fact it is an artefact from my optical system and processing. 
Confirmation by other amateurs and or professional astronomers would be great.
