Uranus Image 2013/02/14(UT)

This shall be the last report for Uranus this present opposition.
In spite of the planet elevation, the observation was not bad but
interresting and for collecting what is shown.
Very faint equatorial zone, brightenings at the sun rise limb, clear south
polar cap were still accessible.
This was un-expected in fact, observation conditions were good enough and
transprency on the sky good also with average good images mostly.
For your perusal.
Have good receipt of the present mail.
I thank a lot the Alpo team here for supporting the publication of my
The survey will start again next july or august as possibly, this shall be
interresting to see if the banding pattern will change with the solar
exposition of the planet..
