The attached sketch is of my Uranus observation , Observing conditions were very good.
The overall planet color was observed as a teal Blue.  The northern cap was distinctly white.  
The equatorial belt was a slightly bluish white, not as distinctly white as the northern cap.  
Just above the equatorial belt a slightly darker and lightly grey belt was observed.  
The southern polar cap  was a darker grey than the grey belt.
