I was hoping to observe Jupiter, but alas the clouds came in. I was able to make an observation of Uranus however, and seeing conditions were rather good.
With powers of 312x and 400x I was able to eek out some fine details including a brighter EZ and a some suspected greyish cloud bands whish were almost on the edge of visibility. Interestingly, the Northern hemisphere seemed to be noticeably darker.
