Uranus Image 2018/01/10(UT)
Here is the Uranus report performed with the excellent 152mm cassegrain F12.
and under excellent images with a 10/10 quote〓with 225 to 316x until 360x for verification.
Notes are included with the sketch.
I tried to respect the albedo differences sothat the pattern appears as presented.
Contrast levels remains extremely low indeed.
The pole cap is the more conspiscious feature, bright bordered by a darker collar,
then the clear gap ring reported since the beginning of the present opposition,
greyer than the pole, then the north temperate band with albedo variations,
then the south temperate band being the darkest feature.
The eq band was not seen.
I am amazed by the pole vision, clear.
With regards to the past reports something had changed significantly into the north hemisphere.
Difficult to say more, however this evening was the best moment of this present opposition.
