Itfs taken me a while to get round to process this, but I was inspired by the spate of detections of the rings recently. Consequently I subjected the stacked and sharpened image to a big stretch (middle panel). Four moons are revealed, but no evidence of rings in my opinion. The enormally processedf image shows some nice banding. I think this is the most frames I have ever stacked for Uranus.
