Please find attached an observation of Uranus I made on 8th November. Seeing wasn't too bad and at x312 the views were rather good. It seemed that the planet looked a little quieter than previously. The features and the colouration seemed much more muted. Whether this is a phenomena of Uranian meteorology or our own (also, the Moon was nearby) I couldn't say.
A vague equatorial belt and lighter zone to the south could be made out, and the northern hemisphere was marginally brighter.
